How long to feed medicated chick feed?

We have 2 girls who are ready to lay and 6 six week olds who are sharing the space we have. They are all eating medicated because of the little ones. We had oringinally gotten non medicated, but had a bloody poo scare so we went out and got medicated. The blood stopped and everyone has normal looking poo now, figures. lol. Anyway if my girls start laying while we still have the medicated feed am I going to need to toss those eggs until they are back to non medicated?

No, you don't need to toss the eggs. Some folks feed nothing but medicated chick starter to all their birds.

But if you're youngest are six weeks old now you can probably switch them over to grower or a general purpose ration now. If you do I'd offer free choice ground oyster shell on the side for your read-to-lay pullets.
