I have the same problem! One store in my area only carries any kind of game bird food at all.....I get freeze dried mealworms, pop them into a sandwich baggie and go over them with a rolling pin. I put the feed into a roasting pan and mix it all in and then put it back in the bag so they're set for the week....sadly, the first time I did this my guy got all excited and asked what I was baking....that could have gone wrong.....
Thanks to everyone for their input. It is always a blessing to have you folks out there to lead all of us newbies in the right direction. The concensus is to go with the Purina Game Bird and Turkey Startena which i found at my local Tractor Supply Co. If anyone has advice to the contrary, please let me know. Again my gratitude goes out to all.
God Bless and may all your farming efforts be fruitful.
I can also toss this out; the first week I made a mistake and feed them 12.5 maintenance formula. They liked it but of course it wasn't high enough in protein and I really didn't see any noticeable change in size. The second week I started using that Purina Game Bird and Turkey Startena and I noticed a significant change in size during the following two weeks.
