    I getting new chicks in a few days and they will be getting a coccidiosis vaccination and what I'm wanting to know is can I still feed them medicated chick starter food? Or will that interfere with the vaccine? Also has anyone had good luck with this vaccination?

    I always get chicks vaccinated for coccidiosis.
    Works great.
    I've read that feeding medicated feed to vaccinated chicks will nullify the vaccine.
    Feed them non-medicated.
