Hopefully at least some of the the eggs that my broody Australorp is sitting on will hatch - they are due somewhere around this coming Friday. I have been feeding my hens organic feed and want my chicks to grow up this way. Can I feed unmedicated starter and leave them unvaccinated or not? I read an earlier post on this subject, but the answers for feeding medicated and vaccinating appeared to be for chicks coming from a hatchery, not home hatched.

I don't vaccinate or feed medicated feed. I raised a batch of chicks artificially (with a brooder lamp) last spring, and this spring I'm letting my broodies raise their own. So far, no problems.
