    I use a medicated feed for the first few weeks and then switch to Dumor 20% chick starter grower.

    I also start shipped or my chicks with sugar water for the first day or so. It gives them a boost.

    I think I would prefer Swanson over Dumor.

    Edited to add:
    Because it seems their product is always really fresh at the store in Gilroy.
