    My chicks are three weeks old (well they will be tomarrow) and I have had them on medicated feed for two weeks.

    I realized last night after the feed store was closed, that I was getting close to the bottom of the bag of feed for the chicks.

    It has lasted me into the evening today, but I am worried that they will run out of feed before their night time feeding. So my question is, if I am running low is it okay to mix some non medicated chick starter/grower in with the end of my medicated just so they have something to eat in the night/morning before the feed store opens?
