Hi I am getting some ringnecks soo and I can't find any turkey/pheasant starter any where. The closest thing I found a 24% starter. I bought that for my chickens. That probably won't work for day old pheasant. Any way what is mash and do I need that? thanks.

If you are wanting to increase their protein, you could always feed them some mashed up hard boiled egg yolk as well.
