    My two brooder chicks ran out of medicated chick starter this morning. I can't get to the feed store before tomorrow. Is it okay if they eat flockraiser for one day and go back on medicated tomorrow? They are 4 and a half weeks old.

    No problem with that at all. Feed the veggies rice yogurt and they can get plenty of protein from scrambled or hard boiled eggs.
