If Organic is your preference, we suggest Purina Organic Starter-Grower. It contains the optimal combination of all the required nutrients chicks need to grow and develop into happy, healthy hens – no need to supplement.

If you’d prefer the traditional route and your chicks are already vaccinated, go with Purina Start & Grow Non-Medicated. If they are not vaccinated, or you are uncertain, go with Purina Start & Grow Medicated. Both Start & Grow feeds contain optimum nutrition for raising laying chicks from hatch to laying age (18-20 weeks). The medicated is formulated with prebiotics, and probiotics to support optimum digestive health and immune function.
