    How old are they? If they're 4 mos. or older, you should feed them layer pellets or crumbles. I know there is a game bird feed, but I don't think it does any better for them, and it's more expensive. I have some of mine penned for breeding, but I have others running loose in the yard. They're good fliers and like to roost pretty high, so if you do allow yours to free-range, you won't have to worry too much about them roosting.
