My chicks are about 8 weeks old now so I went to my feed store to get grower mash and they told me their distributor stoped carrying it. He told me layer mash would be fine. Everything I read says layer mash is to high in calcium and doesn't have enough protein for growing chicks. What should I do?

Do they have any starter feed or a starter/grower feed? Either of those would work fine. Or an all flock feed. They should have one of those, at least.

I found some starter/grower feed at a feed store in the next town. Thanks for the help.
