    Not well at all.
    We only feed them budgie mix, do you think that's a problem?

    Yes. They need high protein feed to lay well.. I use laucke mills gamebird starter (non medicated) but you could use turkey starter as long as you are not going to eat the eggs or birds as most turkey starters are medicated.Try to get the highest protein feed you can find and i'm sure your eggs will increase in no time.

    I'm not sure luke. I think you would take the chance of passing the medication to yourself if you ate it. Just what i have been told over the years. Maybe fancy can explain it better or Ash.
