At our local feed store they have all flock (nutrena) which I'd prefer over Purina. As well as nature smart and nature wise and other nutrena but we know someone who works there so I'm afraid to tell them i dont want country feeds lol
There are other Agways an hour away.
Our TSC is about the same as the local Agway (15 mins) and for Nutrena brands they have Nature Wise Layer Pellets and Crumbles, both 16%, as well as chick starter/grower and feather fixer, both 18%. They also have Purina Flock Raiser and other feeds.
Anyhow, was gonma ask this before we bought it but didn't wanna wait but just grabbed another bag of chick starter/grower but I was wondering if Feather Fixer would be okay???
It says on the bag feed during molting or year round whereas starter/grower says, obviously, for growing chicks.
My dad thinks they should just be on layer and they're too old for starter but I've heard it doesn't hurt them???
They have free choice oyster shell (calcium) and just bought more grit.
They seem healthy, fine, and laying well on all.
Does it really matter much?
I didn't wanna switch feed too fast so opted for starter/grower, which they've had a few bags of, over feather fixer.
But I don't know.
