i went to a feed store today and asked the guy to help me get starter feed for when my chics hatch. he gave me a big bag of it and told me that was all i would need for the first 6 months of the chics life. for some reason that doesnt sound righ tto me. i have read about giving them some kind of mash and something like grit or soemthing like that. can anyone help becasue i dont think the guys at the store knew what he was talking about.
