    ethopabate at.0004% as well as amprollum at .0125%. Based on this information, am I to assume that it will harm my 7 week old chicks if I switch to Nutrina from Purina Start and Grow? -Thanks, Kim

    Amprolium is a Coccidiostat and will not harm your chicks.

    Ethopabate works with the Amprollium as a Coccidiostat according to OSU's vet medical references

    They make a non-medicated chick starter too.

    I have never used medicated feeds on any of my poultry and never will. I do lose some broilers to coccidiossis. But, in the long run, I realize I must breed myself if I want a resistant flock.

    I agree with the last poster. I only medicate my chickens if I have a problem.
