    My chicks are just turning 8 wks old and I need to make a trip to the feed store. I have been feeding them medicated chick starter. Should I continue or is there something different that they should be eating?

    At 8 weeks, they can transition to any all purpose (not layer) chicken feed, like a grower/finisher feed, or Purina FlockRaiser.
