PostSubject: How Much Corn ...?   Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:23 pm

got my young birds on 1/3rd Gerry plus, and 2/3rd breed and wean.....started to gradually introduce the Gerry plus, and will be gradually ending up just on the Gerry plus, question is, how much corn per bird should I be giving, at the moment they are getting 1 and 1/4 oz each .

I know these are a rough guide, as some will eat more than others, and different seeds etc, but I don't want to feed too much or they wont trap of fly, but too little will mean they wont fly either, plus, I don't want to under feed them anyway.

mines on 1 1/3rd ounces breeding mix at the moment I want them having a look about before they get flighty but will tighten feed soon until trapping is in order still probably feed 1 1/4 though I think its a balance between control and making sure they get enough nourishment

yes that's right Darren, its getting the balance right isn't it.....too much food and you've no chance of getting them in until they want to come in.

I think once they are up and flying , it will be better as they will work it off, and be ready to come in for dinner.

By corn I assume you do not mean maize? Anyway. This is a subject that can be debated forever. Feed composition, ounces per day etc,. Actually it does not mean much at all. Full hopper birds will still fly and perform. And train open loft as well. Young birds. Mine are fed once a day. Same as old birds. Have many different ages. They have not been out too often. Snow again today. But to trap them a call or talk to them or a few peanuts works wonders. Each to their own.
