I had to give my Silkies a different organic chick starter . I just found out from the store owner/manager that it is just not chickstarter but a combo organic chickstarter /grower and it is a pelle not a mash. I have them on it for about 2 weeks now. They are 6 weeks old now. I clearly notice the output (poop) is different ,much different in texture ,color,smell. I did a comparison on protein etc on a past blog. . The contents nutrition labeling info in 2nd bag appeared pretty close to first bag . Requirements that they need to thrive are met. I have not changed their diet at all. They still only get half of a small banana that grow heres locally per day. I have changed them in brooder off paper toweling to pine shavings at about the same time. I purposely kept diet the same so I could do process of elimination ,not having to be concerned on what is different for them . It is much easier to observe chicks habits and behaviors this way. My first bag if you read my prior blog regarding the food issue was ordered thru MPC thru a mill in Pa,it was yellow and it was a mash.I cannot afford to pay the high cost of shipping to Hawaii each time I need food so I looked locally.There aren't but a few animal supply stores to work with here on the Island. I rechecked the "poop a page " again and I cannot send a picture. It is brown ,all one color sometimes a bit loose sometimes just soft. It smells worse than inital poop , from first feed they were on for approximately 4 weeks. I do realise they are older yet I still need to know Is this normal? I cannot purchase anything else in the way of organic feed that I want the SILKIES on. What is available is what is available. Help please.
