The only feed i can get around here (that i can find) is medicated chick start/grower crumbles or layer pellets. My chickens are clearly not old enough for layer pellets. But i don't want to keep medicating them. One, because they don't need the meds in their feed in my opinion. We've had our cocci outbreak - medicated for it with Corid - and recovered. There's no reason to keep medicating them. I don't think that makes them stronger. Second, I am filtering out some extra cockerels for freezer camp and would rather that they don't eat medicated feed for a while beforehand. I googled flock raiser and found a couple of places that sell it online, but the added cost compared to what we're paying for the chick starter is considerable, and i'm certain my husband will balk. Advice anyone please? Thanks.
