    Help! My flock of four was raised on medicated feed until they were 11 weeks. I switched them to non-medicated for two weeks but the feed store only has tiny bags of starter non-medicated feed. Can I put them back on medicated starter feed for a few more weeks?

    You can put them on medicated, it won't hurt anything. Myself, I'd put them on grower, or something like that. Whatever they have besides starter and layer.
