    How long do I keep them on chick starter before the broiler feed? I was thinking 3 or 4 weeks, but does it really matter?
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't use any starter. 23% from day one to freezer camp. There is no need for medicated feed as they don't live lnog enough to matter.

    I kept mine on starter for three weeks. it may have slowed their growth a bit, but I have had no heart attacks.
