Hi, I'm wondering if any of you are noticing the same thing. My girls seem solid when I pick them up but the boys don't. I do notice that they give the hens all the food all the time. Problem is It doesn't seem as if they are getting enough to eat themselves. I feed layena layer pellets to everyone 24/7 with oyster shell mixed in and at dinner time they get gamebird food now instead of scratch. I just toss it out and try to make sure it's enough for everyone. I worm everyone with Cayenne pepper in scrambled eggs. They do get yogurt on occasion and apple cider vinegar in the water which is changed out several times a day. Ducks... need I say more? All my birds are tested as well. How do you fatten up your rooster? Not for eating but to keep him healthy. I don't like feeling the breast bone. That tells me something isn't right. They also free range. Looking at them they are very handsome and healthy. I just started giving all the birds a new recipe I found in Mother Earth mag. It's Olive oil infused with garlic. You mix that with layer mash/pellets and scratch/gambird. I had neither the mash or scratch so I used pellets and gamebird food. The birds love it. It's suppose to take care of many health issue including worming. I can let you know what those issue are if you want. I don't have the article at the computer. Thanks for your help.
