This organic soy-free starter chick feed blend does not include soy.
Chick starter crumbles should have a minimum of 21% protein and are used to start out baby chicks. You should use this formula for the first 20 weeks of growth.
A good rule of thumb is that each chick eats about 1 lb of food per week, and they typically eat starter food for their first 6 weeks and grower food for the next 14 weeks. This feed can be both a starter and grower so it is designed for the first 20 weeks before transitioning to food designed for mature chickens.
So, in total, you will need the following amounts of feed over the first 20 weeks:
- 25 lbs of Starter: Feeds 1-2 Chicks
- 50 lbs of Starter: Feeds 2-3 Chicks
- 75 lbs of Starter: Feeds 3-4 Chicks
- 100 lbs of Starter: Feeds 5-6 Chicks
Keep in mind, you do not want to order all of your organic soy-free starter feed at once. By ordering multiple times, you ensure your feed stays fresh.
For example, if you plan to raise 6 chicks, you may want to order 25 lbs every 5 weeks, or 4 times total. This approach ensures they have the correct starter and grower feed for the first 20 weeks of their life and that their feed does not spoil.
