Well now that I'm getting chicks, I'll be needing starter. I just finalized an agreement to purchase five chicks for 30. Vaccinated against marecks disease. Three dominiques and two Buckeyes. I'm scared and excited all at once. I'll go pick them up Saturday afternoon. Luckily I won't have to make the hour and a half trip to their house, as his wife works closer, and has agreed to meet me at her workplace or close by. Less than an hour away.
That's a good price for your chicks! I have one Dominique and she is very quiet, likes cuddles (sometimes) she was a regular layer until she hit 4 yrs, now nothing. Oh well, such is life.
Starter food is a bit more expensive but don't be tempted to cut corners with their feed. There is a precise science that goes into creating the 'perfect' blend. Your boy is going to think he died and went to heaven with 5 wives!
