Gamebird Starter Non-GMO(for Turkey, Guinea, Quail)
Product: Gamebird Starter Feed Non-GMO
Use: To feed your growing gamebirds from birth to 8 weeks. After that switch to a gamebird grower 8 weeks to adult. Good news for quail – this feed does not need to be ground up, the baby quail can eat it as is!
Instructions: Keep feed in airtight container. Free feed your birds. Young birds need access at all times to food and water. Waterfowl need water always when eating. We recommend keeping feeders at the height of their backs, so adjusting them will be necessary. Birds tend to always go for the big pieces of feed or treats. This will help with waste. Make sure to have grit free choice for the birds and fresh clean water.
Quantities: at farm can purchase 5lb increments, 50 lb increments. For sipping 10lb, 20lb increments

We here at Sugar Feather Farm, have done the hard work and found the BEST fowl feed we can find. We would love to share this feed with you, our customers. These feeds are all inclusive for what your feathered friends will need at this stage. We still highly recommend grit on the side, free choice for all fowl.
We source our feed from Triple M Farms in Pennsylvania. They are a Non-GMO project verified facility. All of their rations are formulated by the experienced animal nutritionists at The Fertrell Co. Fertrell provides a unique vitamin and mineral premix with probiotics and digestive enzymes that is used in our feeds. Our blend has all that is needed for all gamebirds we carry.
Gamebirds need higher levels of protein and amino acids for early feather and body function development. This is a critical time in development that will predetermine the productivity over its lifetime.
The feed company does not add any preservatives, it is FRESH. They fresh batch everything to order to ensure you as a customer get the longest shelf life out of the product. The fresher the feed the better. Fertrell Co. sees the best results if feed is used within 2 weeks of manufacturing. However, we understand this isn’t always plausible, so try to feed within 30 days of manufacture to ensure feed is fresh and vitamin levels are high.
The feed is a mix of ground and cracked grains in addition to the prebiotic and mineral blend. We are finding our birds love the feed and are doing very well on it. Any mash left over you can make into a paste or wet for optimum consumption. We are going to keep a limited amount on hand at a time to ensure freshness of the feed and storage capacity. Good news for quail babies – the feed does not need to be ground up, it is already ready to go for them.
Each of the feeds should have the feeding instructions, age range for birds, and nutritional information printed on the tag.
The feed is available in quantities of 20lbs and 10 lbs. This will be shipped via USPS and flat rate pricing
We will have 50lbs and 5 lb increments for purchase. You will need to bring your own container for anything under 50lbs since it is in bulk.
Pre-ordered adults and hatchlings may be picked up by appointment. To safeguard our birds from exposure to disease brought in by visitors, in accordance with the provisions of the National Poultry Improvement Plan, areas where birds are kept are off limits. However you are welcome to look at all the breeds and interactions, it is a site to see.
