    It seems all I am able to get here in Mtn. Home is 20% starter crumbles.........will that work? I know 21% is recommended by Cackle but I can't find it anywhere. Any advice?

    Thanks

    Most starter is 18 - 20%. Your feed is fine.

    In my dh search for crumbles he came home with one bag 18% and 2 bags 20%. I would think I should feed the 20% first since they are only 1 week old.........does that seem right Miss Prissy? BTW.......thanks so much.

    I'd feed the higher protein first.
