Keep Moving - Up With the Carb's and Down With the Protein's
Keeping with the changing seasons, I have modified the hard-boiled egg containing nestling food that was feed during breeding and molting season. Young birds and old cocks are still getting nestling food but the new batch contains no eggs but rather just cous cous with poppy seed and olive oil, processed cooked whole wheat with ABBA green and carrots processed in the food processor with some ABBA Green to make the carrots in finer pieces.
This week only a few older birds show pin feathers on the head and less than 5% show any loose feathering in the vent. It is really amazing how well this works!
Once I start the rollers show training, they will not be feed any nestling food. Only the red birds will continue getting it with the nestling food with red coloring agents till after the show season.
