    So the feed store was out of Flockraiser. They told my husband that the Gamebird Growth and Plumage was comparable. It doesn't seem the same at all to me, for one thing, the gamebird is 30% protein. Will it be ok to feed to the chicks (he got 50lbs). We have 24 chicks, 5 jumbo cornish X; 6 EE pullets, and 13 "assorted heavies". all but the EE pullets will be for meat. They are 5 weeks old as of last friday.
    TIA

  2. What % was the protein before?

    I've fed gamebird feed before with no ill effects.

    the flockraiser I was using was 20% protein.
     
  4. They should be fine. They might eat less since they'll feel fuller.
