    Does anyone know if tsc chick starter is medicated? I looked on the bag, but having a hard time determining this. Is it typical that stores sell only medicated? Thanks for any info.

    Hello from southwest ohio, I buy my chick feed ( DuMor chick starter grower 20%) from TSC and our store does not stock medicated feed. If the feed were medicated I would think it would definitely be on the bag. I got this batch of chicks vaccinated but have raised sevearl other batches without the vaccine or the medicated feed without any issues. Hope this helps. [​IMG]

    yes, I believe I fed my first bunch this feed as well, and I have had no problems and they are almost 2 now. Now I have 20 little ones and I was just concerned that there were so many now, that maybe they should definately be getting medicated. I purchased eggs from two different people across the country.

    Purina has medicated on the front bottom of the bag. Not in big letters but it's there.

    I can't find a feed store in the greater Phoenix area that even sells "medicated" chick starter anymore

    Our TSC doesn't carry medicated. I get mine at the local feed stores.

    think I'm going to the feed store tomorrow, just to ease my mind!! is there a time frame that they should be fed medicated? up until they start on grower?
