    I am by no means an expert, but, when we brought home our chicks we read a lot of posts that say to not give them medicated feed. Most people seem to agree although some people say they do and don't have a problem. Our original batch of chickens did just great! Good luck and enjoy them

    that depends on:

    Are they sick?

    are you wanting to raise them organically?

    were they vaccinated at the hatchery?

    I bought a chicken health pack from mcmurray just to be safe if there was an emergency.
