    Chick starter from the feed store.....
    I've ground up grower and uncooked oatmeal and hard boiled egg before when I was short on starter....they need a good high protein to start em...keep em on grower for 6 weeks and then gradually switch to grower.

    Quote:You want a feed like this or similar. Chicks need at least 18-20% protein content, crumbled so day old chicks can eat it.
