    How long are chicks to be on medicated starter feed? Then what are they to go?
    Thanks

    Depends what medications are in it and what your birds are for meat or eggs
    The chicks in my opinion are fed a 20% chick start untill there 7weeks old then are switched to a grower or start/grow of 18% untill they start laying tgen switch to lay feed
    You can keep them on amproulm untill they start laying if you want

    Good schedule from jk47.

    I don't feed medicated at all. It's never been necessary here.
