    At 3 months old they do not need 30% protein game bird feed. They do need a quality feed that is at least 16% protein. You may want to switch to a quality all flock feed. Chick starter that is 15% protein is not a quality feed for anything. Companies that sell such a feed have only their own profit line in mind and do not care what harm it does to your poultry.

    Quote:Ok thank you, on all my birds i have always fed 15% starter grower. They have all done fine on it. I have many birds and feed as i can. My hens that are laying get Layena Omega Plus My extra roosters i feed a game bird feed to them. I only have a bag of the 15% right now till friday, can the turkeys have it till friday?
