    I had only one chick hatch. I feel it is lonely and would like to know if I can safely mix in TS chicks. I am feeding medicated feed and heard that TS chick are 'vaccinated' and it is not good to feed them medicated feed. Any info is appreciated. Blessings, Jenn

    Yes, of course you can mix your chick with tractor supply chicks. The best time is now, while it's still young. I don't think that ts's chicks are vaccinated... but I would ask your ts. I still think that you would be able to feed them medicated feed either way though

    One chick will be very lonely, so I would get some TS chicks ASAP vaccinated or not.

    You can mix. I unintentionally did it last year. I hatched chicks out then my parents went and bought me 6 for Easter lol
