Hi, I am new to chickens and have 8 b/o's. When I picked up the chicks from Agway, I was advised to feed medicated chick starter since the chicks weren't vaccinated. I had really wanted to keep these chickens as organically raised chickens for egg laying purposes. When I seemed unsure as to the kind of feed I would be needing, the woman who I ordered the chicks from and another woman who happened to be there from Suffolk County Farms also advised medicated starter. What does everyone think of this? They said to use it for 2 months, then switch to unmedicated feed. And this is another question Can I feed them worms or any bugs from my yard if I can find any? They seem to be looking for extra food. Or, can they have any other kind of food? Grass? Lettuce? They are about 1.5-2 weeks old now. Thanks in advance for any advice!
