    How much protein is in your broiler feed? Is it medicated?

    Yes It's the feed you need atleast 26% or higher protein every when they are adults and medicated is only good for when they are sick really. If you can't attain the higher protein they need you'd have to get unmedicated feed the highest you can supplement their protein intake by either giving them scramble eggs or if you can spent beer grain, or incase both those are hard then try a way of collecting bugs for them since bugs are always high in protein.

    robdog is right - no medicated feed and they need a higher protein percentage - some people find higher protein in Game Bird feed or some people use Turkey feed if they can't find Game Bird feed... Good luck to your birds!!!! :)
