I like the idea of of pellets but when I fed them some of the birds would just stand there and look at it. Actually lost a couple because they flat refused to eat them.
Bill when I raised show pigs moormans feed company had a mini-pellets to feed the baby's. Is there anyway to get the feed in mini-pellet form?

I feed a crumbles,but I have got birds from people that feed pellets and a day or to they start to eat them. I do pen them beside other birds to. I would feed pellets if they was smaller than laying pellets. I just don't like the size of most pellets a medium size would be great if the protein was good.

William, the size of the pellet is really small on the big v feed. 20% protein. Either one of these would work great.

Bill the 2 below look really similar. Can you expand on the differences?

While labeling and the analysis tag can look very much alike there are some small differences that can give you some clues on the qualities of the feeds. The percentages of the essentials are better in the one feed and the fact that the fiber content is lower is one of the things that let you know it has a higher quality amount of the good ingredients. Of course there are things that I can see on labels that are there because I have learned it from years of comparing tags with formulations. It would be nice if everyone had to make and ingredient and amount list so you could see what actually is in your feeds. The vita pak is more in the Game Bird Breeder and the Calcium is sufficient for layers. Calcium is one of those cheap fillers that are in feeds that would actually be better bought and supplied in other forms. It is ground limestone and cost nearly nothing.
There is no substitute for knowing your feed manufacturer and their integrity for quality. Everyone talks the game about their quality but you are trusting them to do it.
Those little things like the Lysine and the Methionine are some good things and the fat content is another. The lower fiber is another thing that clues you to quality. It is hard to explain how the yread closely to the same with a giant difference in them but by the formulation the Game Bird Breeder is of higher quality ingredients and more of them.
I hope this helps someone but the best way to tell the quality of your feeds are to watch the birds closely, they will tell you what kind of feed you are feeding.
