    I know high protein (over 20%) is what I'm looking for for feeding the meat birds but where do I get it? What brands? I have a TSC that is the closest although I have Nutrena, Southern States, and Purina close by.

    Thanks!

    TSC sells Dumor chick starter feed that is 24% protein if you like that protein level.

    Quote:X2 but I did find after using a couple of sacks of this that they were just getting wat to big to fast so I dropped down to the 20% and still had huge birds at 8 weeks!!
