    I know these breeds require higher amounts of protein and especially the saipans cant tolerate hard foods like corn.. But what should i start the chicks on?

    How about a meat bird starter.

    I would go with a chick starter that's somewhere around 20-22% protein. I don't have those breeds, but that's what I start all of my chicks on. My Silkies stay on 20% chick starter for life, and they do great on it :)
