I have found a couple of good attachments for the Chick feeding lab, but I would like a few suggestions please. We hatched 8 chicks yesterday so those will be my trials. The thing I'm struggling with is that I have 2 classes that will be doing the trial. Do I need to divide them up into classes, or do do you think the results will be ok to have both  classes work with the same groups?

I'm still trying to determine the best feed rations and how to divide them.. 4 groups of 2? or 2 groups of 4? Chick Starter, corn meal, meat bird feed, and or game bird? Has anyone done this with good results?

One example trial was mixing an 8% protein(corn meal and chick starter) feed and then a 24% protein feed(chick starter and game bird).

If you have any more worksheets or information, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
