    My daughter is getting her 4-h layers and fancy poultry ready for fair in 3 weeks but they may need a little boost. I made the mistake of recently adding a couple hens and a roo to the coop, so some feathers are ruffled and some weight has been lost, but things have settled. On the flip side, her Seramas just got done brooding, so they are an absolute mess and need to gain some quick weight too... So, my question is what are some good food items to really get birds in shape quick for show?

    I like feeding dog kibble (or cat) soaked in hot H2O untill it is soft. It's a good protein boost and easy and cheap too!
