    How long should they be on the chick starter? and would it hurt to get them medicated since they have been on non medicated since birth?
    If i do get medicated, does that mean i cant eat thier eggs right away?

    you can use the chick starter with meds. I used it for about4 weeks now they are on grower and chick 20 0/0. this you give them
    till they are 15 months then depending what you are working with feed the best for them how old are they they usually don't give eggs till they are
    4 months or so again depending on what kind they are
