    I think there is...though I don't know why anyone would use medicated starter as FF. Kind of defeats the purpose of it all, both ways.

    Good to know! Maybe they have changed the amounts in the feed or just have done more studies since then. I remember it was a BIG no no back when I had them.

    It's always been a no no but probably from people feeding medicated and then also putting amprolium in water. That's even a no no for chickens.

    So if I feed un medicated starter it should be fine. Thanks!
     

  10. Next time take a picture and post it? I have never had a layer of mold- just a wee little on the sides from time to time if the kids forget to scrape them.
