    what kind of feed are you feeding? medicated? chick starter? Gamebird? meatybird? what % protein is it?

    What we do:

    Medicated for 1 week and then switch to a gamebird grower/finisher 22% protein feed for the next 7 week.

    18-22% from beginning to end. Many folks run the same feed all the way through.
