I have 8 Silkie chickens that just turned 4 months old on the 6th. I would like to move them out to the coop within the next week, they are in my basement right now, and I love it but, the weather is turning nice and I want to use the cages they are in right now for breeding, eventually. They are still on medicated chick starter but this week I have introduced them to pellets in addition to the starter. I'm stressed about taking them off the medicated starter 100% because I worry about Cocci. I lost one of my lovelies last summer to it and it devastated me. I so do not want to go through that again! Should I transition them into the coop and feed them flock raiser hoping that their exposure to the other birds will help them gain immunity or should I keep offering the medicated starter while they are out there? (hmmm..Im thinking I might be the one not ready for this).
