Traditional, also called non-medicated, chick starter crumbles have a minimum of 18% protein and are formulated for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency.
This feed is intended as a complete crumble for the first 8-10 weeks of your chicks life.
A good rule of thumb is that each chick eats about 1 lb of food per week, and they typically eat starter food for 8 to 10 weeks before transitioning to food designed for mature chickens.
So, in total, you will need the following amounts of feed:
