    Hello,
    I am getting chicks for the first time in a couple days.
    I am trying to raise them naturally. I have read you can prevent coccidiosis by putting soil from the chicken run in to the brooder if you have perviously had chickens. What if I have never had chickens, is there preventative measures?
    I have corid incase but I am feeding them unmedicated chick feed.
