    i feed the medicated starter feed until 8 weeks old or until the 50lb bag is gone then switch to flock raiser formula. Then the broody hens (if you have any) wont be laying eggs with medicated feed on board since they usually dont lay again until after the chicks are 8 wks old.

    read the bag..it usually says on there what the manufacterer reccomends
