Young animals born from well cared parents have all the immunity to protect the kids/ chicks for 2 to 3 weeks. Today's parent birds of integrated companies are well loaded with antibodies against all known diseases. The chicks are hatched in well managed hatcheries with maternity ward sanitation.
Provide physical comforts like comfortable temperature, clean water and initiate them on balanced feed till their own immune system grows well.
Any advise on medication of young chicks is selling tactics, not the need.
Young chicks require comfortable environment not medicines.

Dr. Kotaiah Talapaneni, Hi Dr., I could not agree more with you that maternal nutrition is very important not only to the breeders but to the chicks as well. It is good that you have an intensive way of managing your breeders. In Novus, we also encourage providing a highly bioavailable source of organic trace minerals which have been proven to improve hatchability, reduce embryo mortality and produce good quality DOC's even until harvest. This is only a small investment compared to the returns from both the breeders longevity and health and the good quality chicks. Feel free to reach out to us if you are interested to know more. Thank you very much for your valuable comment.
