    More important than the amount of protein is the first few Ingredients listed in the feed . We need to find what and which ingredients is most important to the birds we are feeding and look for that first .
    If one can get quality ingredients usually the correct protein will be there .
    Needed Fat is often over looked in feeds .

    Quote:Why is that? Can you be more specific? Flock Raiser is not medicated and is higher protein from my understanding. I used it with no problems?

    I now use a turkey starter, non-medicated that is 27%, my birds love it.
