    I am using Game Bird Grower. It might also be called Developer, depending on the brand your feed store carries. It has a higher protein component than the chicken food for young (not baby) chicks.

    X2 on the game bird grower. Something in the 20-24% protein area.

    At our farm store, the game bird/turkey feed is only 17% protein, so we feed chicken meat maker that is 22% protein. Check the label.
     
  5. We feed a 28% game bird starter for about the first 3 months, then a 20% start n grow until about 5 months then 20% layer when they go out with the flocks

    I feed 30% game bird starter/grower for 5 months and then change to layer after that.
