I now use medicated feed. At 1st I was using a chick starter from Tractor Supply but I dont think it is medicated because it can be used for quail. The last bunch of hatchlings I gave them a nutrional supplement water. And I have started giving them chick grit in their feed. I have been told to only give them sugar water for the 1st 48 hours to give them energy. I have yet to have a new batch to try that. I have only been hatching out babies for about 4 months and have learned some things. But I would like to know what exactly everyone else does. I still occassionally loose 1 here and there even though they are 2 months old. Give me the gory details of how/what you do.
