Care of Birds

After receiving your birds, we strongly recommend that they be put on a light anitbiotic through the water. When birds are moved from one place to another, they undergo a certain amount of stress that could lead to sickness. We recommend Terramycin, Bacitracin, or Penicillin. All three can be given through the water. These drugs can usually be picked up at your local feed and supply store. Leave your birds on one of these drugs for about 7-10 days.

Use a game bird grower feed or a turkey grower feed as sole ration for all three types of birds. There are a lot of good game bird feeds on the market today that will work fine. Make sure the feed is a minimum of 20% protein.
