I have a group of chicks that is about 8 weeks old and another that is about 7 weeks old that I'd like to move outside. They've been on non-medicated feed thus far. Should I switch them to medicated feed before putting them outside or can I continue with the non-medicated variety?

I think that you can continue giving them unmedicated. It's just a preference.


Have fun with your chickies!

Critical period is over for the disease that most medicated feed treats. Keep feeding what you are as Tiramisu recommends. WHen I fed medicated I stopped at 10 weeks. Birds are fine.

Luck

Thanks everyone! I didn't want to get this far and then lose some!
