    Cat food is better! Dog food have low biology level protein( mainly vegetable protein) cat food have mainly animal protein!

    That's why I said it's only a supplement during molt... :)

    Mine are on Scratch & Peck Naturally Free Grower, which is 17% protein. I've been looking for something to easily up the protein during molt - so thanks Ravyn!

    Not if you buy good dog food! But I think I'll check mine and maybe give the chickens some. It's 30% protein.

    Welcome! :)



    X3!!

    Advice is great, but always check everything yourself... don't take every bit given as written in stone... (yes, I am counting my own in this, lol) and pick what works for you and your birds... ;)

    Also, just a bit on dog food vs cat food... dogs can be on a vegetarian diet and be healthy, but cats cannot... can't remember what it is in animal protein that they need, but since chickens (and ducks) are omnivores this might be something to keep in mind... :)

    I have read a handful of old (1920s) chicken keeping books and every one of them swear by animal protein.
