    I bought a few pounds of chick starter from the feed store where I picked up my chicks, and today I picked up a few more pounds from the store closer to home. The starter I got today is very fine, and the one from last week is more like crumbles. I'm assuming it's the same thing just different form, so is it ok to just mix these together?

    You can mix them together, or use up the first stuff and then use the second. It is recommended that when you change food you do it gradually. Mixing in 10% then 20% and so on.
