    I have been mixing feeds to try and get a feed that works for my Chickens, Quail and ducks.

    So Far the best I have came up with is a base of Gamebird booster mixed with Egg ration (about 14-15% protein). I also give them free choice Grit/ oyster shell . The only problem I could see is the mix may have to much Calcium ( any ideas on the calcium % ducks,quail,chickens need?)

    **FYI- I tried mixing sweet feed in but It gave the duck sever Diarrhea and none of the birds really acted like they liked it. -- I wouldn't reccomend doing that***

    :DAny help would be appreciated:D
