    I bought s-run,and was wondering if they were ok to go to freezer camp if eating med. feed,or should I feed them a non med. feed for a few weeks before they head to camp.
    Also will they taste better if given scratch? Breed are RIR &BR.

    I think the feed bag should tell you the answer to that. But most people do not feed medicated feed for a long period. You feed the med feed for however many weeks is suggested on the bag then switch to a flock feed as the chickens get older. If you are saving the pullets for egg laying, they need layers feed. If not, then feed an all purpose feed.
    That is what I would do. Someone else will have a better idea, I hope.
    Good luck.
