    I have been raising chickens for 2 years now. In a few weeks I am getting some more chicks but also 2 turkey poults, white breasted. I usually feed medicated chick feed for 1 month or so then switch to non medicated feed. I was also told it helps to have the chicks there to help teach the poults.

    Will it be ok to use the same feed or do I need to do something different this time around? I don't vaccinate so that is why I usually use one bag of medicated feed.
