How important is the first ingredient in a complete feed? My girls like the feed at Costco, which has a first ingredient of wheat, but it’s only 16% protein and is a layer feed (some girls were taking a laying break due to molting), so I switched them to a 22% grower feed from my feed store. They’re doing better on the high protein feed, but I recently realized the first ingredient, milo, is considered a low quality grain. I find this surprising since milo (sorghum) is a high protein grain. I pay over twice as much for it and it is corn free and soy free. Wondering if I should look for something with a different first ingredient. Both the Costco feed and the milo feed are organic, non-GMO crumbles. Thoughts?
