All are still peeping and doing great, yay!!
Q, what's the difference between chick starter & chick grower?
In nature, they eat whatever their mom eats, so what does it matter? Are we just turning them into dogs and cats with how we feed them?
I ask because I have a 30lbs bag of something, maybe starter or maybe grower, the tags been tossed long ago. It really needs to be printed on the bag itself....
I use chick starter that is designed for baby chicks up to 8 weeks.
They do not need any extra grit with starter food since it just mushes after they eat it.
It's also got the right amount of protein (etc.) that a growing chick would need as well.
Outdoors with mom they eat some of the dirt/grit from the ground and mom will actuall peck little pieces of the food for the chickes to nibble on.
