    I called an asked my feed store how much they broiler feed was. Turns out they sell purina flock raiser for people doing meat birds? Is this the same as broiler feed? The other store sells broiler feed but it's medicated for cocci....

    Turkey feed is a good idea, just make sure that whatever you feed, you're above 20%. I used a non medicated chick starter that was 21% and switched over to a broiler crumble at 8 weeks that is also 21%. The turkey stater at my store is a whopping 28%!!! seems like overkill but I'd rather be over with meaties than under.
