    Tommorrow is my "due date" for these eggs in the bator. Woot![​IMG] It really has snuck up on me, and I'm not totally prepared. I'll probably be buying any feed I need at TSC. What kind of feed should I get? Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    BTW: These are cochin eggs.

    it would prolly be wise to purchase medicated chick starter..this feed helps to prevent certain diseases...i forget what the diseases are called

    I didn't even see this post..... I agree with bigtooks. I buy medicated chick starter. The bag may actually say Start and Grow. I hope they do well for you!!

    Usually, a feed store is less expensive on the feed, if you have a feed store around. I always use Purina Start and Grow until they are 17 or so weeks and then they get Layena. Really, any medicated chick starter would be great. Good luck on your hatch.
