Wasn't sure where to ask this question since there was a "General Discussion" or "General Poultry" section... Anyway...: Are store-bought poultry (chicken and turkey) fed medicated chick feed when they are chicks? Just wondering since it is recommended when you buy chicks to feed them medicated feed for a few weeks. And what about the hens store eggs are from? Just wondering since I have a family member that is uneasy about eating our eggs since the hens as chicks were fed medicated feed. ALSO.... How does the Amprolium degrade once it is digested and passed into waste? Is is bio-degradable? Or does it just have a half-life like some meds and decompose on its own over time? Just wondering since in our front yard flower garden last year we put some of the pine shavings and chick droppings up there as mulch without thinking about the medication that was in the feed, and since that is the south side of the house we'd like to plant some watermelon or corn there. Thanks in advance.
