    Here is another. Do I need to get medicated chick starter right off, or only if the chicks are not doing so well?

    Or do I start off with just plain chick starter?

    What are your personal favorites brands? Please lots of advice on what to feed please.

    I never use medicated feeds. I think it is better to let the chicks develop a natural immune system.

    Thank you for responding so quickly to both posts. I agree with you on not medicating especially so young. It would in my opinion destory any immune they may have from birth.
