Cons - Bad smell, strong smell, chicks aren't a fan
I choke every time I open the bag, my chicks aren't a huge fan of it but thankfully still eat it. The smell is so strong it attracts other animals to the feeder/enclosure.
The reason I bought it is because TSC was out of my favorite feed and this was cheap enough I could buy multiple bags.
I like the price and the chicks do eat it, they just don't love it.
If I had the choice I would not buy again, but as a last resort yes I will buy it.
I used the Nutrena starter/grower because it was the same brand they will be getting as adults. I liked that it was middle of the road for price as well as calcium percentages and protein percentages. They seem to be growing like weeds. I had no problems with this feed.
I bought this for my new chicks because they were out of the Dumor brand, I got it at Tractor Supply. I will NEVER buy it again. Every chick has gotten severe pasty vent/butt from it. I have to clean them every night. My first batch of chicks never had pasty vent on Dumor feed. My mom has chicks and we had no issues with the Dumor food. I was very upset with this product, I will not be buying it again.
