    You will be fine but make sure that you don't feed them medicated chick starter to them when they are over 2 weeks.

    They are going to grow a little slower on the chick starter than the broiler starter as it's lower in protein. But you will be fine.

    Believe me, they'll eat that bag in no time and then you can get the other. Everything should be fine.
