    I was running low on ckick starter, so I went to the feed store and they were sold out of chick starter.[​IMG]

    All they had was Meat chicken starter, so I bought it. I still have some regular left. Sold I just go back in a few days and get the right stuff, or will it not hurt them. I don't care about buying more, I will just use this to feed my roos.

    It Probably wont hurt them for a day or so...but the high protien content might now be good for them. It will make them grow too fast, and have problems later. Now, the Rooster( full size?)..I say...let em have it!
