I've never used medicated starter for my birds, but recently I bought some chicks that were already on it. They are all getting close to the time I switch to grower, 7 or 8 weeks. Is there something special I need to do for the birds on medicated starter? I remember reading NOT to switch them from medicated so I kept feeding them the medicated. But is there anything special to do before switching them to grower?

Agreed. I switched my chicks from medicated starter/grower to straight, unmedicated grower at 8 weeks. Actually feeding them gamebird grower because chick grower is not available locally.

Okay good! SO is it true not to switch chicks that are on medicated to non medicated? I wanted to switch them but I kept them on it because I had read you need to.
