Last month I purchased a 50 lb bag of game bird feed but found out it was game bird chick starter once I unloaded it from my truck. Rather than returning it I decided to keep it for any peachicks that hatched out. Unfortunately I only had one successful hatch. Is it okay to use that starter feed for all the peafowl?

It can be beneficial for the adults during the molt but they do not need a feed that high in protein during the rest of the year.

Good to know I can use the game bird starter for the adult peafowl, at least for awhile. What about using it for my chicken chicks that are 6 weeks old?

My chicken peachicks, poults, chicken chicks, and ducklings all get a a game bird starter. I give it too adults too, but gotta make sure they don't get too fat on it.
