    My birds are ready for slaughter in 2 weeks. But I ran out of feed from countryside naturals (shipping killed me) and I dont want to order form there again. No one around me has broiler feed. The feed meal told me to feed turkey rations but it has animal by products in and its by Purina. Any thoughts?

    You might want to ask whether the turkey feed is medicated or not.
    All the turkey feed around here is medicated so I dont use it.

    Purina makes several feeds that dont have animal by products in them.. Their Flock Raiser should work for your broilers. I think it is 20% protein.
    Here is a link to their nutrition information. Click on any of the feed names for more info.
