    Re: Seed mix for different species.

    Poultry

    Feed number 3 or broiler breeder crumbs for breeder birds, feed number 1 for chicks and 4 for non breeders.


    Pheasants / game birds

    Feed number 4 for non breeders. Feed number 3 to breeders. Try to increase protein.

    Re: Seed mix for different species.

    Pheasants should get some balanced diet.

    lot of greens every day
    Lot of stone/shell grit available all the time

    a mixture of the following seeds/legume

    - wheat
    - Whole mung daal
    - crushed corn
    - red rice
    - Kangni (big size)
    - bajra
    - black sunflower seeds
    - Khurtum (safflower seeds)
    - chicken feed no 5.

    this will ensure that they get a baklanced diet. In the wild they eat lot of insects so chicken feed will
    give the necessary protein.,
    I love all kinds of birds/animals specially finches/Canaries and ex. class english budgies
