Will be hatching eggs soon this is all new to me any help would be nice thanks Anthony
stop at Oxford Feed and Grain, get a chick waterer and chick feeder, and a bag of Purina Chick starter, you can also get these at TSC, but they dont always have chick starter, and Oxford has PREATTY colors for the feeders, and TSC only has red or galvinized.
I didn't know we needed special started food.
My feed store sold me nutrena nature wise.
They're eating it fine.
ok thanks do you have any idea on price?
Well min was under $8.00 and about 17-20 lbs.
I use chick crumbs .... the basic difference between them and Layers is the very high protien levels, and less calcium.
Many brands are also medicated to help prevent coccidiosis. Some breeders prefer un-medicated.

This feed is designed to be fed as the sole ration to replacement pullets from 1 day and broiler-type chicks.

Nutrina NatureWise has different chicken feeds, http://www.nutrenaworld.com/Screens/ProductDetails_Specialty.aspx?ProductID=125
Quote:12.79 for the starter grower dont forget to add TAX that is for a 50 lb bag
what about medicated food? do I need it?
Quote:I use it, some prefer not to.
Round here just getting unmedicated is hard.
If the chicks are to go into any area previously used for poultry I would use it. If not it's less of an issue
