Payback vs Purina?

I’ve been feeding my 3 mo olds Purina Organic Starter and Grower since they were a few days old. They seem to have done very well on it.

I went to the feed store and they gave me Payback Hatch to Hen on accident. I was in a hurry and didn’t return it. Does anyone have any opinions on either food?

I’ve got new chicks who are on my remaining Purina. Does switching even matter when the protein content is the same? Thanks!

I have no experience with Purina. I do feed Payback hatch to hen when I have chicks/young pullets, and I'm pretty satisfied with it.

Assuming you're fine using it, switch over when you're running low on Purina by mixing a 50/50 batch, then they should be good with it after that. Or if you're mean like me, just swap over entirely once you're done with Purina... they'll eat it regardless if it's the only option.
