Feeding Directions

Feed Purina® Start & Grow® Medicated feed to layer chicks from day one through week 18 as at least 90 percent of the chick’s diet. Transition to Purina® Layena® or Layena® Plus Omega-3 feed at week 18.
Use as the sole source of amprolium. Do not change the litter while giving this feed unless absolutely necessary. If losses exceed 0.5% in a two (2) day period, obtain an accurate diagnosis, and follow the instructions of your veterinarian or poultry pathologist. Losses may result from intercurrent disease or other conditions under field conditions. In replacement flocks, the grower must expect that excessive exposure to one or more species may overwhelm the drug in some flocks and prompt treatment will be required.Do not use in feeds containing bentonite.
Please consult the feed tag sewn onto this bag for specific feeding instructions.
