    Hubby bought the wrong food for our baby chicks, and insists they can eat it and be fine. It's Dumor Chick Starter 24%, bag says for turkeys, etc. Is this ok? I keep worrying about this.

    i don't know, but if it were me, i would put it on the shelf & get them the stuff i know is good for them. i understand how hubbies can be about wasting things, but if it's wrong & hurts the chicks, then what kind of bargain is that?

    Lots of breeders use it. It'd do no harm. It would not, however, be medicated, if you care about that.
