    I fed my breeders 20% non-medicated chick starter...and in the off breeding season they got 16% layer crumble.

    Do you have a Tractor Supply store near you? Or possibly a feedstore?

    Gamebird feed with at least 20% protein is what they need. Blue Seal is all I can get where I am - Blue Seal Gamebird crumble.

    Just feed them Purina Mills Game Bird Starter 30% protein.
    Go to www.purinamills.com , type in your zip code to get a list of dealers. Start at the top and call and ask if they have it, if they don't, then ask if they will special order it for you. If both answers are (NO), then move on down the list.
