So, I'm getting back into chickens after 3 years of not having them (So excited!). I just went to Tractor Supply today and picked up some of my essentials and walked out with 50lbs of DuMor chick starter 24%. I looked back and forth between the 20% and 24% and, for some reason, decided on the 24%. I didn't read the bag because I thought, "I've done this before, and back then they only carried one kind - the 20%. So maybe the 24% is better?" I never had a choice before. I was clueless about the difference between them. Now after a little bit of research I've found that the 24% is really just meant for game birds/ meat birds. I'm getting Cochin bantams so I really don't need the 24% but I don't want to have to drag 50lbs of feed (50 was all they had) alllllllllllll the way back to TS and switch. We don't live close to it. I haven't been able to find a clear answer as to if it's bad for them, just a bunch of "Meat birds need higher protein to grow faster." or just that it's "intended for game birds". I've still got another week before I get the chicks, so I will gladly exchange if needed. This is the first time I've ever come across 24% chick starter. I already know about all the other protein levels in grower, layer, etc., and when to give it to them, so I don't need to hear it again. Please refrain from commenting all of that, because as I've said, I've done this before. All I need to know is if the higher protein will cause any negative effects on them. I've read a few possible side effects but I couldn't find any specific answers. Thanks in advance!
