    Greetings from Kansas, cross1966, and [​IMG]! Pleased to have you here! The choice of medicated vs. non-medicated is personal - some swear by it, others avoid it. When it comes to moving them to the coop, it should be when they are fully feathered - 4 weeks in some breeds. A lot of that depends on your climate. Good luck to you!
