    I am trying to put a little more bulk in the diet of my penned birds by using alfalfa / oat pellets. We are into third day of applying and some are starting to show differences in their feces. Others still not touching the stuff. Anyone tried such as part of the ration?

    See link to product being used.

    I feed mine rooster booster. Its a 15 way scratch with like 18% protien and 6% fat and it seems to do ok. Most that see my birds say they look healthy

    Ive been trying your advice on the oatmeal or grits for my babies instead of starter for first 5 days and they seem to be doing great

    This has been an argument between my brother and I since we were kids as my Asian cocker grandfather thought my cuban grandfathers birds were dunghill and visa versa. There is some jungle fowl in there for sure and yes malay types but base has to be bankovid and things like hennie are just the result of set line or phino type breeding. Speaking of the English, Irish and Spanish lines that were originally imported to the Americas.

    I am going to give them a week to adjust. If they do not get into it better then cubes will be soaked in water to see what that does for intake. This stuff is being provided in addition to a ration that is known to be sufficient if not a little high in protein.

    I will take a few new pics on the weekend sir. I live in the city and my birds are on our farm a couple hours away. I have this black Dom at home though.[​IMG][​IMG]
