I went to a different feed store the other day which was closer to my house to buy some food for my three 5 wk old chicks. The crumbles I had raised them on previously, were supposedly good until they were laying. I just told the guy at the feed store that I needed chick food and he said they had it in 25 lb bags. I figured that was fine because I could use it for several more months (though I had always bought smaller bags before at the other store) . Unfortunately, because my chicks were hungry, I took the bag home and immediately opened it up. First, I realized it was powdery instead of the crumbles. After feeding some to the chicks, I read on the bag that it was chick "starter" which was only good for chicks up to 6 wks! I guess before, I must have been buying the combination chick starter/grower. Darn it! Now I'm going to have to see if I can locate anyone who needs 20 lbs of chick "starter" because I'm going to have to buy another kind of food after next week!
