    We bought a bag of medicated chick feed last spring when one of our hens went broody. Unfortunately, none of the eggs were fertilized! Is it safe to feed our chicks this year from that same unopened bag? I've googled this and can't seem to find a shelf life. Thanks for your help!

    As long as it didn't get wet, it should be fine. If it got wet, then the feed will mold and you don't want to use it.
