New Country Organics Certified Organic, Soy-Free, Starter Feed is essentially the same as our Broiler Feed, but with a higher protein content (21% vs. 19%) and ground finer for baby chicks. We suggest soy-free Starter Feed for the first 4 weeks of the feeding cycle. Then switch to our soy-free Broiler Feed. The larger pieces of grain in our feed should stimulate development of the gizzard and help produce healthier adult birds. The peeps never stop when your birds get New Country Organics Poultry Starter Feed.
