    I thought Seramas were supposed to be as small as possible.

    To add weight, you feed high protein and give exercise to build muscle mass. If you want additional fat, you keep them quiet and feed extra corn. So, it depends upon what you are trying to do.

    We feed Purina Poultry Show chow. I believe it is 26% protein. [​IMG]
