Protein Level

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by Tikkijane, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. I have always used Purina's Sunfresh chick start and grow, which has 18% protein. My other option is DuMor, which has 20% protein. I know the protein is good for feathering, but I'm wondering if that 2% matters?

    What do all of y'all prefer, and why?

    I have Silkies and buy the Dumor for them because of the extra protein.
    But that's just for my Silkies.
  3. Not enough difference to matter.........Pop
