I have no knowledge in chicken feed but is this unmedicated feed?or medicated feed?question is because I don't have no feed for my feeder insects for my reptiles and you can feed feeder insects unmedicated chick feed instead of food especial for feeder insects which is a lot more expensive than chick feed?if its medicated where can I get unmedicated and how can I tell the difference??

That should not be medicated ... but is also not "chick feed" ... as in for little fluffy chicks that go "cheep-cheep" ... but is a grower feed, for once the chicks are grown up some, and have most all of their feathers ... looks like "crumbles" too ... Chick feed is called "mash" and is more like course ground flour or cornmeal ...

That is unmedicated, it says on the bag if it is medicated. That is not chick starter either. Chick starter will say chick feed or chick starter on it then it will say medicated if it's medicated.

What kind of feeder insects? I give All-Flock crumbles to my mealworms. You can also give mealworms cornmeal, oats, bread, oat bran, wheat bran chaff, etc. If you are raising crickets or something else, I don't have experience with those.
