    I would like to put my poults and chicks together for a while, but am concerned with the feed. I have poult food, but have heard that poults cannot have medicated chick feed. the poults are 3 weeks old. Will this hurt them now??

    Why not get a bag of flock starter, that can be fed to poults and ducklings and goslings and chicks, but keep a couple of the small, circular chick feeders with them, filled with medicated chick starter? The poults should be too big to eat at the feeder, but the chicks should have no problem. I guess it depends more than anything on the age of the poults and the age of the chicks!
