    Is it okay if my 3 week-old silkie chick eats Dumor chick starter/grower? Is s/he to young? On the package it says chickens 0-10 weeks old should have it. Is my lil' silkie considered a chick in this situation? Thanks.

    I don't know anything about Silkies, but I would say that s/he should be fine eating it. What is s/he eating right now? I start mine on chick starter ASAP after getting into the brooder from the incubator.

    If it says 0-10 weeks and she is 3 weeks, than it is fine for her. A lot of feeds are both a starter and a grower - pretty much the same.

    I tried the food on him/her and s/he is fine.
