    i use purina gamebird startena for the first six weeks, it has 30% protein. then after six weeks i switch to duroc chick feed wich is 24%. this has worked well for me.

    Purina startena (30% crude protein) or king turkey starter (28% crude protein)

    Laying hens I take off of the starter around 5-7 weeks. My meat birds get un-medicated starter for their whole life cycle.
