Answer:
HI there. You may feed the chick starter for now, it is formulated with everything they need. They may stay on starter or move on to the grower feed from 8 to 16 weeks. When they are about 16 weeks old, you move them to layer pellets. If you free range them, or give them other food, such as; oatmeal or corn, etc… see more HI there.

Answer:
They do not get Coccidiosis from their "own" droppings. But they do easily pick it up from protozoa found in the ground. The whole idea behind medicated chick starter is that it helps chicks fight off the early exposure to the germ. As they age, they become stronger and are most likely immune due to earlier exposure. … see more They do not get Coccidiosis from their "own" droppings. But they do easily pick it up from protozoa found in the ground. The whole idea behind medicated chick starter is that it helps chicks fight off the early exposure to the germ. As they age, they become stronger and are most likely immune due to earlier exposure.

There is another method of preventing Coccidiosis, and that involves vaccinating newly hatched chicks. If you are ordering directly from a hatchery, this is often an option for a few cents more per chick.

The one other option is to limit exposure to older chickens and to areas where other chickens have been until the chicks are strong enough to fend off the Coccidiosis. However, the oocysts (Coccidiosis "eggs") are pretty much everywhere and if you take care of a flock already (or have a large population of wild birds on your property), there is a strong chance you will transmit the oocysts in your clothing, shoes, hair, etc. And that is part of the argument for vaccinating or medicating chicks when they are new to this world. see less
