Hi Jennifer,
There are probably others here more qualified to answer your questions...anyways, here is what we feed:
Purina Bird Flight Conditioner...comes in a large bag(probably 50lbs). The protein level is 19 percent. This feed is in a very small crumble form and has worked well with buttons, bobwhites, chukars and our small bantam chickens and guinea fowl. For younger chicks, we use a non-medicated chick starter from the feedmill, not sure the protein level. We add alittle boiled, crumbled egg yolk and mealworms to their diet. I believe that some chick starters are medicated with an anti-coccidia med to prevent cocidiosis...I think this is added with intensive chicken farming in mind, you know, the crowded sad situations that are factory farming. Apparently, this medication is harmful to ducks especially(that's what I've been told anyways). Hope this helps!
