Yeah this question has been asked alot, but I want to ask it anyways.
Currently, I have ISA browns, they are about 6-8 weeks old. I was feeding them the Dumar grower/starter mix, however I saw some comments about how they make coops stink, as well as the fact that its more expensive. I'd like to know a few things.
What brand do you suggest for ISA Browns?
Can they go onto a grower finisher now even though they are about 2 weeks shy of 10 weeks?
What can be supplemented into their feed other then grit, to off set cost? (currently, have 90% chicken feed, 6% wild bird seed, 4% grit)
How much feed suggested per bird?
These teenagers are non organic, non-slaughter, Let out a few times a day from a tiny coop and run.
We have Tractor Supply, Southern States, and True Value as feed store options. I will not be giving the birds any meat substances in the poultry kingdom.
I'd like to really take care of my birds. I feel bad for all there relatives in the egg industry, and I want to bring as much quality into their lives as I can. My babies are more like pets. However, I don't think expensive feeds are always the best.
Thanks in advance!
