    I have 10 White Rock Pullets, 1 White rock male and 2 white cochin. They are just 2 weeks old. They have been eating Dumor chick starter at 20 %. I accidently bought chick start 24. Its a 50 lbs bag already open. My question is what will happen to my new chicks eating that much potein so early in live?

    They'll be fine! I always end up having to switch between the two different protien percentages because TSC never has the same % whenever we go to get more and I haven't had any problems.

    Hope this helps!

    No problem. 24 is just fine.
