    Hi there I have a question, as always I am FULL of them.
    I have been raising chickens for 2 year now and had been feeding all my chicks Southern States Medicated Starter/Grower but was none to please with the quality of their product, I would like top the the line stuff and am wondering what your opinion is of: PURINA MEDICATED START & GROW?

    I read really great reviews and it is in stock at my local TSC so it would be convenient to buy as well, I do not need anything organic as my chicks are neither meat nor egg production chicks, they are for exhibiting in my local poultry shows when they reach maturity.

    Thank you for the input!

    If you are wanting, " top of the line feed" then Purina Start & Grow isn't the feed for you.
    Purina Start & Grow just like Flock Raiser, Layena Sunfresh and Layena Omega 3 are middle to low end feeds and if you want a good to upper end Purina feed your going to have to go with either Purina's Wild Life line, Honor line or Mazuri which any of the 3 are a lot better feed than the standard Purina Feed.

    Oh, meant to ask if it was safe to feed to the type of chicks I am getting, they will only be one day old, obviously and they are d'Uccle Bantams. Maybe a silly question but I noticed it said broiler and those are large birds.

    Thanks!
