    I just got back from the feed store where I was picking up some chick starter for my chickens.
    They are about 9 weeks old and I have been giving them the starter plus greens and scraps.

    All they had was (manna-pro) game/show feed and they said it is basically the same thing and fine for them to eat. Is this true? If they need to be older for it I will just hang on to it and pick up the starter feed somewhere else in town.

    What do you think?

    It is fine until you get something else. Dont worry about it too much.

    I checked the manna-website but I always get good advice here.
