    I need some ideas for feed recipes or buy feed that will make my chicks grow faster and put on the pounds in less time. any ideas or advice? Thought about putting more corn in the feed and other people have told me to use turkey feed any advice you may have?

    When i raise boilers i use turkey feed for the first two weeks. They explode in size. If you want to feed your chicks turkey feed, make sure you put their food and waterer on a ramp so they have to walk up and down the ramp. By doing this you ensure good leg strength.
