What do you feed gamebirds?
Posted on Monday 11th September 2017
Farmed birds require a very carefully balanced, high protein diet. This is extremely difficult to maintain by feeding them solely on grains and natural vegetation as protein levels in grain fluctuate too much to provide gamebirds with a complete diet.
Gamebirds should be fed a milled pellet, made from cereals, legumes and meat meal with added vitamins and minerals to provide a consistent balanced diet.
Laucke Mills have created three different Gamebird feeds which provide a nutrionally balanced diet for all stages of your Gamebirds life – whether you are growing ornamental birds or birds for the table Laucke Mills has a feed to suit.
