    Just bought 4 Pullets: 2 Rhode Island REds and 2 Golden Sex Links age 3 months old.
    Tractor supply store didnt have any Grower/Finisher so i just bought a bag of starter/grower, should i be feeding a medicated feed or not? What are some things that i need to do first that you can think of.........The person i got them from says they have been wormed, been on medicated feed, probiotics in the water and so on so on.......Oh and by the way how do my ladies look

    Backyard Flock.......Albany Ga

    Medicated feed contains an ingredient that combats cocci. I haven't had a need for it, myself (knock on wood).

    Lovely birds.[​IMG]
