At what age can chicks be taken off medicated chick starter feed?
Feed bag labels usually have guidelines printed on them. Usually starter is fed to around 8 weeks, then grower to around 20 weeks or when they start laying, then layer. Around here they sell a "starter / grower" that you feed from day one til point of lay. Medicated (if it's with amprolium) won't hurt them, nor will starter feed for longer than 8 weeks.
They should be taken off at 8 weeks old. Below is what I do....
Medicated chick starter from day one to 8-weeks old.
Starter/Grower from 8-weeks to 18-weeks
Layer from 18-weeks on
