    I feed mine the same chick starter that my chicks had been getting. Unmedicated that is.

    I feed mine Purina flock raiser crumbles, and they love peas too. Mine are two weeks old

    I fed mine the Purina all flock raiser crumbles, but after a month and a half, I started mixing some adult all flock feed with it.

    I feed wet Purina Flock Raiser crumbles to hatchlings. When they are nearly fully feathered they get dry crumbles and when they are full grow they get pellets. They actually have access to pellets while transitioning off crumbles but I don't stop feeding crumbles until they are eating the pellets. They get the same feed from hatchling to adult, the only difference is the texture to make sure they don't choke.
