    I have golden,silver.lady Amerhurst an feed them on Poultry mix and also give them Foreign finch mix 3 times a week

    They also have lettuce cucumber an tomatoes
    Also they get worms which i buy in the fishing shop as i cant get Mealworms
    Should i give them the seed more often ???

    What else should i give them?

    They all look well and are laying eggs

    Except the Silvers they have stopped laying for 3 weeks now [​IMG]

    Poultry mix? I would think that would be low protein. I use gamebird feed for all my pheasants.

    Quote:What percent of protein are you giving them? As for your silvers, they are probably done for the season. i know another guy that has silvers and his haven't layed an egg for two weeks.
