    Feeding

    Any help on how to feed, Ive been trying all the usual, they dont seem to like soaked whole oats, but they liked the flat rolled oats, I use pellets, crak corn, blk snflwer seed, wheat, and a little dogfood. I have only a trio of a 10 mo old stag, 6 mo old hen, and 1 yr old hen, strictly for show and breeding and the live in a pen with 60 square feet. They are bumblefoot greys. They dont seem to like pellets so I tried a little crumbles they ate em, so maybe ill switch that part. They seemed to eat the most when I mixed wheat, pellets, flat rolled oats and the blk oil snflwer, wetting it and stirring it up right before feeding, thanks all

    Thumbs up Re: Feeding

    Did you wash the soaked grains before feeding it to your fowls? They do get stale after being soak for a while in water. Hope it will solve your problem. More power.

    Keep in mind these are smart birds. I guarantee you they wont die of starvation. Eventually they will eat what you give them. I feed all my chickens tomato one day a month. I then will not feed the next day until that tomato is gone.

    Thanks all, I just dont want to mess up their diet with all the changes, but then again Im not really adding or subtracting too much of one thing, I just want to be feeding nutritionally ballanced diet, I also feed them mealworms and grass or lettuce and fruit, a few times a week to give them a fresh/natural choice, I know overfeeding can cause pickiness, but since they are young Im figuring that their metabolism is higher so I feed about to cereal bowls of feed twice a day,(not per bird but for all 3) also when I said for breeding and show I really mean that I will never take them to a pit, I just really like gamefowl and their history. I have a 4 or 5 mo old hatch stag runnin the yard and a hatch hen, I feed them only lay pellets and a few treats but they always have access to fresh grass, and they look great, and dont complain like my grey hen does in the pen. They dont act picky. I also will give all my birds a few days a week of vitamins/electrolytes in their water.

    I am not sure how much is contained in a cereal bowl... for the trio at most should be 120 grams of feed twice daily... Maybe the problem is over feeding...
