    i took my 20 week olds (pullets and roos) off of medicated chick grower 2 weeks ago and placed them on broiler grower/finisher so that i can narrow down my 9 roosters down to 1 or 2, the rest will go into the freezer at the end of the month. i now have some 12 week old pullets that have outgrown the brooder and are in the big coop & run full time. they've been on medicated chick grower while in the brooder.
    is it alright to feed 12 week old pullet that are now in the same coop & run as my 20 week olds broiler grower/finisher-18% crude protien?

    I'd just use the grower/finisher and not worry about needing the meds any more. With exposure, they are likly already immune to cocci.
