    What is the percentage of protein? I start mine on a broiler, turkey, gamebird starter at 25% protein. If it's too high, you can always mix it to get the % down..

    Anything between 20 and 24% is okay. If I am at TSC I get the 24% and if I am local I get the Purina Flock Raiser that is 20%. Mine are 4 weeks old now (I have 19) and over 2 pounds each. Good luck!
