You’re not a mother hen, so it’s natural to have questions about raising chicks, ducklings, goslings or other poultry. We’ve been raising a backyard flock at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center for decades and have written dozens of articles on this subject. We’ve highlighted a few of our most popular ones.
Whether you’re raising chicks, ducklings, goslings or other poultry, lifetime success starts the day your little ones arrive.
Bringing home chicks? Look for a Purina® complete chick starter feed, like Purina® Start & Grow (medicated or non-medicated) or Purina® Organic Starter feed. These feeds are formulated to provide all the nutrition your chicks need in one convenient bag. You’ll feed the complete chick starter feed on day 1 of bringing your chicks home through week 18.
Bringing home other baby birds? We’ve still got you covered. Look for Purina® Duck Feed for your ducklings, Purina® Meat Bird feed for your broiler chicks, Purina® Flock Raiser® feed for your mixed flock and Purina® Game Bird 30% Protein Starter feed for peafowl chicks and gamebird chicks (including quail, pheasants and guineas).
