    Hi ,
    I started my five baby chicks on manapro medicated chick starter that i purchased from a store about 30 miles from me. Tractor supply is about 10 miles down the road but they didnt have the manapro medicated. is it ok to feed them the starter that is medicated with the DUmor chicken starter feed? I tried to find the ingrediants on the dumor to make sure it did not have bentonite in it . Can anybody help me with this?

    I am new to chickendom so I am sure I will have many questions.

    DuMor chick feed is just fine and your chicks will do fine on it. DuMor is simply Purina packed for TSC. Think Kenmore for Sears.
    TSC also has Purina's own label. Either will do just fine.

    I'll look and see if I can find the particular ingredient of which you spoke.
