    What type of gamebird or chicken food do you prefer to feed you're pheasants or other gamebirds?

    I perfer to feed my birds crumbles because I found that it is easier for them to eat and them clean it up better.

    Both. But if I could find gamebird feed in pellet form I would love it

    Where I am I usually get Purina Crumbles, the most common type in my area. But at one store I can get Nutrena gamebird, which comes in pellets.

    Voted "other". Mine get a mix that I have made. I have a contract with a local feed mill and when I need something, I e-mail them my 'recipe' and they make up my mixes.

    Could you share your recipe? I am really trying to find a nice one for my chicks.

    My husband is actually in the process of a patent, so he'd kill me if I shared it. I'm sorry! I can give a 'sort of' I think, let me check with him before though. I have to live with this man HA




    Edit - Wanted to add, he just said we should hopefully have information on the patent in a week or so and he said after that I can share all I want :)
