    I received a few young roosters (less than 4 months old). These roosters are Rhode Island Red
    cross breeds. I am trying to raise them as meat birds and I am looking for a high protein content
    feed. I live in Austin, TX. What feed would you recommend? For those who are local to the Austin
    area, what is a good feed store? Thanks.

    22% (?) protein mixture -- AKA "Grower" feed, or turkey feed. [​IMG]
