    They don't need any medication unless they get sick. Many people keep Corid on hand in case of cocci outbreak which is probably the most common problem in chicks. That's actually the only thing I've ever had to treat chicks for.

    Never had a cocci outbreak but kept mine on medicated feed. The only added ingredient in medicated feed is the same active ingredient used in Corid in very small amounts to prevent cocci outbreaks.
