    Mine do. I also give them BOSS, they seem to love them. And they are noisy! I always know when predators are around now, even when I'm brushing my teeth [​IMG]

    When my keets were younger I fed the Game bird Crumbles, but now they eat what ever the chickens eat. Which is Layer Pellets, scraps, scratch etc.

    Game bird starter while they are small (keets) Chicken scratch or layer or corn (whole or cracked). they will eat anything and usually thrive on it. Offer calcium to make sure they get enough.
