    hi group,see many posts about starter feed for peafowl,.
    but some say feed medicated,some say not.
    have had my peafowl chicks for 4 weeks,and kept them on unmedicated feed,as i saw more posts against ,than for medication.
    now,i feel,they are older,and able to have a better feeding regamine,ie game bird crumble,which i mix with the starter feed.
    worried,that now that they are much larger,and as i still have to keep them warm[they are now loose in my bath tub,with a heat lamp,on a wire base,with cat litter underneath]
    feel,they have more openings for diesease/bacterial infections
    also just got a wormer,is it too early to start this?[liquid form]
    thanks
    gary
