    With our first batch of chicks last year, we fed them medicated; this April when I get more chicks I'm going the unmedicated route too. I too want them as natural as possible; I also feed my hens organic feed from the local Agway.

    I did an edit on my earlier answer because of a brain cramp... we have used Layena (Purina) and DuMor Chick Starter (Tractor Supply) without issues... we prefer unmedicated also.
    MannaPro at TSC is medicated I believe, we've never used it, so can't comment on it otherwise.

    Stone dust, DER dust, driveway gritty stuff. It works great for mud, and crap mixed together while wet. Nice thoughts uh?

    If you use the gamebird/showbird starter it is unmedicated. I use this in a pinch when I can't get my other feed.

    I have geese. I don't want anything with medication in it. It will kill them. If they get to it somehow. That's also why I started to do injectable antibiotics. I know the bird is getting the meds, and it won't hurt my geese. I don't eat my chickens, I can't.
     
  6. Does anyone sell golden laced Wyandotte chicks in Pa?? I live in northern PA an hr above Scranton. Can travel a little ways.

    How is it that I have NEVER heard of any of these places? Are you all Steelers fans? Please say it isn't so.
    Sally, you are amazing!! Thank you for this info! I, however, will never be NPIP unless PA finds a way to incorporate free rangers into the program.

    Well said!!

    It's way more than Private, it's 'secret'.
