    Hi all,
    I went to my local feed store looking for un-medicated chick starter, but they only carry medicated. The gentleman suggested I use their non-medicated duck starter for my chicks. Do you think this is a suitable option?
    Thanks for the help!

    Ask them if they have an unmedicated gamebird feed. This is what I was really encouraged to use and have been using and my birds are doing very well.

    You can also feed them "raiser" or "flock raiser" if they have that. Or "Grower" it is sometimes called as well.
