    i posted this before in the chicken forms but since this is mainly for geese, you tell me can i feed this to geese

    with the price of feed going up and owning so many birds i have found a feed mill that sells there own feed. they do many livestock feeds and am Quickly buying 95% of all my feed there. i have had No problems, and i find the feed to smell sweet i like the size of the pellet/crumble and my chickens Seem to do great on it. However it is indeed Medicated. but for the price i cant beat it. its medicated with Amprolium used to help with coccidiosis. now they sell "Layer" and "20% starter grower" and i would like to know if i can also use this feed for ducks and geese, and yes i could ask the company, but of course they will say yes so i want to ask you. here is the Analysis of the 20% starter/grower


    crude protein...........not less than 20.00%
    crude fat...................not less than 7.50%
    crude fiber.............not more than 6.00%
    calcium.................not less than 0.50%
    calcium.................not more than 1.00%
    phosphorus........not less than 0.50%

    Medicated with amprolium..........0.1375%


    and now i came up with a even better idea as i write this out, scan it. let me know if you think this is a good idea and can i feed this to ducks or geese.

    as for price this is $10.50 per 50 pounds
