Alright, so I am getting a couple, like 5, Welsummers and Ameracauna chicks. My cousin is ordering a whole bunch, so she's ordering me some too. I was wondering, though, do you have to feed them medicated feed if you're raising them inside and keep them really clean? Is it better if you do? Should you? Is it healthier to feed non-medicated feed? I will eventually be switching them to Countryside Organics Layer Feed, which is what I feed my current flock of 9 hens, so they will lay organic eggs. Also, I raised my last chickens (also my first chickens) on paper towels for the first two weeks, and just constantly cleaned the cage. Is that necessary? Should I just use pine shaving? Newspaper isn't really an option as we don't get the newspaper.
