If your chickens are getting to the point of lay it is better not to be used. Even though the chickens are eating medicated you are using the eggs and it is not good for humans to have.
I have kept my pullets on medicated feed 3 weeks after laying began mixed 50/50 with layers pellets.My chicks are only about 2-3 weeks old. Would that be ok to give them medicated? Once they get closer to lay I will switch the layer feed.
Thank you!! Also, what about grit? Should I use grit? If so when? I’m 100% new to all of this and obsessed!Yes...You can use medicated feed and you can consume eggs from Hens that have eaten it too.
I use medicated feed with Momma raised Chicks. I asked a university poultry Vet and its save..The switch won't bother them..
