Hey Everyone! I just got some bittys today and decided that I would start with a Organic Chick Starter...I used to work at a F&S and realized that the Organic Stuff is not Medicated! So I have some Tetrycycline Powder, but may need to get something different as that is more of a treatment than a preventative I suppose?? Or do I need to worry about it for now? I don't want to lose any chicks, it would kill the little girls to have one of their chickies die so soon (My lab got hold of the last chicks, wanted to play and they just weren't up for the task ) Should I use something to medicate them, or is there a suggestion for ways to maintain health? Btw, the place that I got them from was this old farmer who has been raising chicks for years, he's a bit like the Sanford and Sons of Chicken raising, so there is the possibility of them needing to be medicated, maybe? Idk One last thing, my Mother is a bit worried about Salmonella hearing about the recent bout with Chicks sent out from some of the larger hatcheries. Is this something that I should worry about with my chicks? Is there a way to test them to make sure that all is well, esp. when we begin to eat the eggs??? Thanks all!
