    Hi everyone!
    I have a small flock of Modern Game bantams. They are my first of the breed and Im wondering if there's a type of feed that is recommended for them.
    I don't care about eggs, I care about the health of my birds as they are just viewed as pets.

    Let me know what you think!

    sometimes people feed them game feed, but i don't think its really necessary.

    My birds all get Purina Flock Raiser, which is always fresh at the local feed stores, and fine for birds of all ages and sexes, with oyster shell free choice on the side.
    A good all- flock feed, 18% to 20% protein, is nice.
