    Healthy chicks

    By on

    Tried this brand of chick food. I have to say these guys of mine are heavy and extremely healthy that i hatched. The food seems to be more refined then other brands and at 20% protein i can see the difference they are growing fast.

    If you REALLY love your chicks

    If you cherish your puffballs& wanna give em THE best start in life- thenthis is your bag.. literally. At around 7x the cost of the agricultural milled starter, this feed contains all kinds of logical solutions to your chicks dietary needs& delivering essential pro/prebacterial cultures to boot- also, as a means of addressing the risk of contracting cocodiotis- they hope to build immune systems SO STRONG, so resilient- they can be exposed in every was and just brush it off.

    Chick starter

    By on

    Eggs haven't hatched yet, but it's good to know, I have the chick starter ready. I live in a rural community and getting supplies delivered is a real convenience.

    Decent size bag

    By on

    Pretty good if you've got a small number of birds. You can't beat 25-30 lbs for 10 bucks from your local feed store. But it can be hard to find non-medicated feed in some rural communities and this is a decent size bag. Crumbles were small enough for baby beaks, and not too dusty at all. I use this as part of a blend for my game birds. Works great.
