    Don't pre-medicate. They need to develop their own immune systems. But you can purchase vitamins that you can put in their water to help them get a good start. I wouldn't worry too much, if their mama is a good mama, she'll watch out for them.

    We got 9 poults with two hens. They are doing well. I worried althogether too much about them eating and drinking, but now they are 4 days old and they are hungary and eating.

    We are just feeding non-medicated food. We will hopefully be getting more poults, there are 4 hens sitting on eggs.
