Since mine are aboutr 6 weeks, chicks, maybe I will finish this bag of starter feed out, then after that buy some feed, before the layer feed. I would like to get them little by little used to the big coop with the hens, in about 2 or 3 weeks, what doyou think?
Well I been useing buckeye but I am going to start using kalmbach feeds the pro.% is close to buckeye... I tryed it on a batch of around 25 chicks and I like what I see and the price is a little cheaper..I know the starter is a "turkey" starter but the meds. are the same as the chick starter and it is the high protein that I like...
Thanks for the link. We have nothing I know of right now close to that but still have more checking to do. I have 6 feed stors local one being a co-op and one TSC. Right now my chicks are on Burkmann feeds which seems to be good but I want to put them on a 20% grower when it is time and that is harder to find here. I will probably just switch them to TSC Dunmor forumula which is that with out meds.
When I was first checking it was chick season and most places were sold out when I was looking. I should have better luck now that things have calmed down a bit
We will be free ranging so feed will be for winter mostly.
