What are you on now? If you have been on starter (or broiler blend) that is 23% or higher protein content it will be OK to drop to 20% starter or broiler feeds. Starter or broiler blends have a higher content of key nutrients that will keep your birds healthy and on the fast tract. There are some 20% starter/grower products out there that are very good. If you have been on 20% starter/grower I wouldn't change.

I switched mine to unmedicated feed for the last month. One of the books I have recommended it that way for the last 30 days. I intend to butcher mine at or around the 56 day mark.
