Find the Right Feed for Your Baby Birds
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).
