Medicated and non-medicated feeds are the two primary options in complete starter feeds. The option you select should be based on whether or not your chicks have been vaccinated against coccidiosis. Coccidiosis can impact chicks at a very early age and the vaccinations should be provided at the hatchery in the first few days of life. Feed a medicated starter feed (with amprolium) to those not vaccinated for coccidiosis and a non-medicated starter feed to chicks who were vaccinated for the disease. Regardless of the presence or absence of medication in the starter feed for your chicks, select one that includes: enhanced amino acids to promote early chick development, prebiotics and probiotics to support immune health, and a balance of vitamins and minerals to support bone health and bird growth.
