    If they're babies they shoud have chick starter. Ours get non medicated Purina chick starter, and Purina flockraiser when they're older, which I like cause the whole flock can eat it and it's higher protein. Not everyone likes Purina though. I'm not familiar with Dumor. Really a matter of personal choice. When ours are six weeks old r so we start mixing their food with a little cracked corn or scratch. And they can have table scraps too, there's tons of posts on here about what table scraps are good for your chickens. Good luck with your chickies, you'll have fun. [​IMG]
