Will the medicated chick starter effect the unborn chicks?
The medication interferes with the metabolism of thiamine (B1) in coccidia.
I don't know if it blocks absorption in the chickens' intestine but here is a link to effects of vitamin deficiencies.
I do know that a thiamine deficiency in breeders causes polyneuritis and dead embryos during the last 3 days of incubation.
