Antibiotics are illegal in US chicken feed. Medicated starter feeds have amprolium which mimics thiamine on order to starve out (not actively kill) or slow the growth of coccidia.What are some of the things that I should try to avoid when purchasing chicken feed or scratch?
What name will antibiotics be under?
I feel it's fine in moderation. But some people seem to think that a cup or two a day for a tiny backyard flock is just fine, so the birds aren't getting a balanced diet like they should be eating.Why do people think scratch is bad? If use sparingly, it's great for them..... I sometimes mix them with regular feed and they love it.
