    Hi,

    I'm trying to switch my pheasant's feed to this kind they have at Fleming Outdoors, i'm not sure if this feed is for gamebird chicks or for the adults? Could someone please help me out, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Here the feed:

    I would say it's for adults seeing that they have adult birds on the bag.I enlarged the pic but couldn't read the small print.I believe Tractor supply is carrying that feed also.
    You can't just switch their feed all at once,you need to give them a little of the new feed mixed with their other feed adding more new and less old as the weeks go by.And be sure to check if they are eating the new feed.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    Yes i'll add a little of the feed to the one their on now and gradually add more. I wasnt sure if it was for adults since it said starter and grower. I'll take it its for adults.

    Thanks I appreciate it!!

    Birdman, If the description of the feed is starter and grower, this feed is for chicks. Look for a feed that says wild game bird feed (pellets) for adult birds.
