Thanks Tommy, I visited your web site, you have some great birdsand some very useful info there. My son and I had wondered about any special diet the phoenix will require. Currently we aren't set up for hatching eggs but we hope to be in the future. Although our phoenix are only hatchery chicks we look forward to their arrival in early June, tips we gather from your page and the links you've listed will be greatly beneficial.
I am glad that my website is useful for you and your kids. I will do my best, put even MORE info in them in the summer once school is finally all done. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me.
Oh, for the diet, Phoenix don't need anything "Special" because they have more chicken in them than birds...only the Onagadori needs special diets.
