    You can feed it to them. I think that is like 20%. Right?

    Until I started getting my feed custom mixed, I only used Flock Raiser for the meat birds, start to finish. They do fine on it.

    I also use the Flock Raiser. Have had some leg issues with it, but so long as you turn off the brooder light at night you can prevent leg issues pertaining to excessive growth.
    Keep an eye on the manufactured date. Will be printed on the bottom white seam.
