    Hi
    I have just been reading up on the internet about chick crumbs, noticed the thread below as well, but just wanted to know what make people use. There are two types on a website I have looked at, A & P Small Holder Baby and BOCM Farmgate. The latter is cheaper but thought I'd see what others use.

    Also I have read this ' in general you should be very careful about feeding chick crumbs to ducks as some companies products contain an anti-coccidiostat which can be harmful to them'. Could there be something in this that can be harmful to cats??:(
    Thanks!:)

    The ones I am using at the mo are an Argo brand. Never heard about the duck thing, but it would probably involve a lot of eating of the stuff.

    Definitely don't use ones that contain the anti-coccidiostat. Make sure you buy a NON-medicated brand. I'm pretty sure Dodson & Horrell chick crumbs are unmedicated. :)

    Ah thanks for that! Will certainly make sure whatever I get if I decide to go down this route is non-medicated.
    Thanks

    There were some other threads on here about litter v chick crumbs - people seem to either love them or hate them. Maybe worth a look :)

    Thank you!!

    I have just read all the posts. Think I will give this a go. I get my kittens at the end of Aug. I always used Worlds Best before and after reading about chick crumbs thought it might be worth a shot. I have saved the links to my favourites so will order nearer the time.
    Thanks again.

    No probs. I used to use World's Best, but with five it's too expensive now. I was put off the chick crumbs by the other posts - let me know what they're like when you've tried them :)

    I'm using them - they seem to be almost exactly the same as World's Best - work in exactly the same way etc - great!
