Our feedstore was out of the Purina brand chick starter today, and in fact had no actual chick starter. The guy there, who I believe knows his stuff pretty well, sold me Kalmback turkey prestarter/starter. It has 28% protein, 3% fat, and 4% crude fiber. He seemed to think it was actually better for the chicks than actual chick-starter and said that alot of folks raising for 4-H use it, but I am guessing those folks are going for fast growth. I want to insure proper development for my layers.
