Feeding Purina gamebird starter. 30% protein. $17.00/50 lb bag. Switched to Flock Raiser in week 3. 20% protein and 13.25 (I think) /50 lb bag. As of 12-18 there are 102 active happy healthy birds. They average 2.03 ounces for a total weight of 12.95 of bird. They ate 8.5 lbs of food from Wednesday - Saturday. On 12-25-10 I weighed and counted 101 birds. I am hoping I miscounted and there are still 102, I can't imagine one just dissapeared. They average 4.4 ounces for a total weight of 28.05 of bird. I have a runt that weighs 2.2 oz (I think it's a bantam?) but the next smallest is 3.4 ounces. The biggest is 5 ounces. They have eaten a total of 37 pounds of feed. On 01-01-11 I there were 100 birds. I lost one to an accident and another has simply vanished. They average 7.5 ounces (not including the runt, for a total weight of 46.6 pounds of bird (including the runt. The runt (Gimley) weighs 3.2 oz but the next smallest is 6.6 ounces. The biggest is 9 ounces. They have eaten a total of 88 pounds of feed. As of 01-15-11 (sorry, I missed a week) I am sad to report that Gimley has passed away. He developed a respiratory problem and stopped eating. I did try to nurse him along, but he did not respond. The rest of the lot are all happy. Some of them are getting some kind of skin problem. They are missing feathers on their backs up next to where their wings are, and they have scabby dry skin. I did not see any 'bugs' but I moved their tractor off the shavings and onto fresh grass and they seem peppier. I will make it a point to move them at least every other day and see if the skin thing clears up by being off the shavings. I only weighed a sampling this weekend. The smallest was 9.8oz and the biggest was 15.2oz. The average of the ones I weighed (10/99) was 13.4oz. They have eaten a total of 217 pounds of feed.
