    Ok so my babies are now almost 6 weeks old, how long do they stay on starter feed? Also how long do they need those baby waters? Thanks!!

    Quote:Personally, I would feed the Starter at least 6 wks. minimum, (preferably 3 months). The extra $1.50 or so per 50 lb. bag for the higher protein is justifiable for quick growth, and might help somewhat in cannibalism. Here in the soggy south, mine are going to the big-bird pen outside at 3 wks., where they now drink from the big-bird waterer.
