    I always give my new chicks medicated crumbles. I assumed that would make them immune to cocci. Doesn't it? I keep them on it for 10 weeks.

    It is a great help in blocking most, but not all, the cocci. The immune system is allowed to strengthen, without being overwhelmed.

    Yes or no, it is a personal management choice.
