    I give up. I've been trying a 2/1 mix of 28% protein Game Bird Starter and scratch. I use straight Game Bird Starter on my babies, up to about 6 weeks old.

    The brats, as you all warned me [​IMG] waste the expensive crumbles in favor of the yummy scratch. So it's back to boring feed!~LOL I'll probably use BOSS as a treat, along with the occasional fruits & veggies.

    I also bought some 24% starter for the babies to try. I don't want to go any lower protein, since my turkey poults will need it and the sweet Serama babies too [​IMG] My turks won't start laying until Spring, but my Serama girls are like little laying machines right now!
