Dumor Chick Starter

Discussion in 'Feeding & Watering Your Flock' started by SundownWaterfowl, Sep 12, 2008.

  1. Is anybody here feeding Dumor Chick Starter from tractor supply? Are your chicks healthy, or are they sick?

    i use it for all my chickens. LOVE it.

    my meaties are very healthy and they started and now finished w/Dumor

    my 40 chicks + 5 turkey poults doing very well on it

    new batch of 182 chicks pecking at it and seem to love already.

    7 adult large chickens finished on it and very healthy

    4 adult bantams on it and doing great

    hope this maxed out report helps.

    also...all have very nice feathers, combs etc. soft and shiny!

    I'm feeding it to mine! They love it so far and they seem fine [​IMG] and it seems small enough for my new sebrights to eat [​IMG] (I finally got them Chelsea [​IMG]) But my silkies do have a tendency to take dust baths in it.... guess its time for some sand.... or atleast a different food containner [​IMG]

    I used it for my first batch, and had no problems. I've since switched because I've found it at a mill nearby and it's much less expensive.

    I use it for my 6 BRs that are now 1 month old. They are freakin' HUGE and are moving outside to the coop this weekend! All six look to be happy and healthy.

    Since Tractor Supply is the closest source of feed, Dumars is what I use and all of my birds are doing extremely well.

    I use it & they have grown a lot in 2 weeks. They are not sick at all.

    I've always used it and my current chicks are healthy and growing like weeds....

    ...of course they spend a majority of their day free ranginging with Mom, so the chick starter is only a small part of their overall diet....
