I have just recently purchased 18 baby chicks hoping to get a few more too. I am feeding them PenPal chick starter. I see PenPals makes layer feed too, is their layer feed decent? In the past I used Nutrena or Layena. But I do see that Pen Pals has plant and animal proteins and based upon what I have read on here that animal proteins are good in the feed. there is no Kent, Blue Seal etc etc dealers in my area as many folks like there feeds. I live in new port richey and mainly you only find the big name brands of feeds in the radius of 30 miles of me. any input would be awesome i havent had chickens in like 6 yrs so im rusty at things.
