    I got some Medicated Chicken starter and I poured out the first bag today into a container. There were clumps of feed in the bag that seem to be lighter then the rest of the feed. Is it still OK to give to my chicks? I was not sure if it was mold? It was dry when i open the bag. They should be here tomorrow morning.

    Perhaps it's a mixed feed of some kind? Or check to see if there's a date on the bag.

    Return it, and get some better feed. Doesn't sound normal at all. Sounds like either it got wet or was bug infested.
