    have some left over starter feed from my rir's. Today I will be getting my corks. Can I feed this to them. I don't have the bag it came in so I can't look up the ingredients and someone here suggested starter with ONLY amprolium. I have about 30 lb. left and hate to waste it. Any advice?

    Yes, feed it to them. They need chick starter a couple weeks before you switch them over to broiler feed.

    The only feed I can get for the duration is starter feed 21%. Sound OK? Thanks Miss Prissy.

    That will work fine. They are only going to be around 8 weeks.
