Hi, so I am new to the site and new to chick raising but I've been researching like mad to make sure I'm doing everything right. I have a couple questions that I can't seem to find a straight answer about. Okay so yesterday I went to the feed store and finally purchased 4 chicks and a duck. So, I have heard that you should not feed ducks medicated chick feed so I have all of them on flock raiser start. Now, what I want to know is, how likely will it be that they will contract cocciciosis? It is a fairly small flock, and I have been doing a good job keeping it clean and dry, but I would hate for them to fall ill. Secondly, will they still build up a natural immunity even when they don't get medicated feed? I would like to take them outside to play in a few weeks but I don't want that to make them sick, and I'm not positive what age will be the safest to take them out...help!
