stop at Oxford Feed and Grain, get a chick waterer and chick feeder, and a bag of Purina Chick starter, you can also get these at TSC, but they dont always have chick starter, and Oxford has PREATTY colors for the feeders, and TSC only has red or galvinized.

I use chick crumbs .... the basic difference between them and Layers is the very high protien levels, and less calcium.

Many brands are also medicated to help prevent coccidiosis. Some breeders prefer un-medicated.

Round here just getting unmedicated is hard.

If the chicks are to go into any area previously used for poultry I would use it. If not it's less of an issue
