Starter feed with amprolium or lasalocid?????

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have seen both.  Is it ok to use lasalocid?  The food I just bought has this in it.  The concentration of Amprolium in chicken food says .0125% while the lasalocid says 113 g/ton.  Is that comparable?  I am feeding regular chicks, some large fowl, some bantam.  Can anyone tell me the difference?  I guess the lasalocid is what they give turkeys and chukars.  Is this safe for me to use for chicks?  Thanks for any info that anyone can offer.

113 g is .25 pounds, so is 0.0125% of a ton.  The percentage is the same.

My regular starter has amprol, but the 30% game starter has the other.  No one ever got sick when the chicks would steal from the poults.
