After doing some research, I have decided to switch my flock from strictly layer to a mix of layer and game bird feed. The ratio is about 10:1 layer/gamebird. a.)My girls had a little too much calcium. (lots of eggs spotting) b.)I wanted to increase their protein a bit for the winter. c.)They LOVE, love the seed. I figured if they were going to eat it (and they will, their favorite activity is hanging around my wild bird feeders >_<) might as well give them seed that was intended more for food producing birds. My girls are free-range. I do not supplement with anything else. Obviously, they had been getting plenty of calcium. But having read some more on here, I am now worried the protein content of the game bird fee may be too high. Though, I suspect they're going to go straight for the seeds and ignore the pellets in favor of their usual crumbles anyway, so my worry is probably all for not. Has anyone else experimented with game bird feed recently? What should I watch for? *Edit* Meant to post this in the appropriate "area," but got a little lost. >_> <_< Feel free to move and sorry!
