German Rollers eating Purina Flock Raiser immediately after putting it in their cage.
Non-medicated, nutritious and 20% protein makes this a great time to add flock raiser to your birds diet. Although higher priced than last year, it cost about $20 for 50 lbs.
Flock Raiser is crumbles are easy to eat. I feed it plain and also cut my regular seed mix by about 1/4 with it.
Another trick I have been using is processing green stems for the birds rather than wasting them in the cages. Here some collard green and bok choy stems are ready for processing. Yesterday, it was spinach stems. Processing broccoli also saves waste as the stems are totally eaten just like the heads.
Once processed it is ready to add to a conditioning mix. If it is too wet drain away the excess and add extra dry ingredients such as CeDe, Protein 25, or Petamine Breeding Formula. Adding petamine to a mix cuts the waste as birds like to pick the seeds out and eat little of the nutritious powder.
