    They Need More Protien And Less Fiber Than Chick Starter. They Need Gamebird Starter Which Is 30% Protien And A Different Formula That Has Less Fiber So No Diarrhea And Dehydration. If Unable To Find It Turkey Starter Would Be The Next Best Thing

    Most gamebird feeds I'm familiar with has more fiber than the chick starters,,some up to 8%..The more fiber the less picking. usually

    Quote:Thats all I feed, even to my older birds, if I cant get the starter I get the conditioner which is only a couple % less protein.

    Sucks that its one of the most expensive bags of poultry feed, dont it? [​IMG]
