You can start mixing in your fat items bacon grease, coconut oil or buttermilk. It should be a "mushy" consistency. This will require you to check the feed more often because the bird tend to not be attracted to the hard old feed. You may want to top with gro-gel or mealworms to help make them want to eat it.
I will be at the project center on Wednesday from 4:30-5:30, if you would like me to help you mix your feed.
You should begin culling some birds this week. You will need to have less than 20 birds left by next Monday. If you need help culling please contact me and I will schedule a time to come help you.
If you dispose of your birds at the project center. Please be sure they are not moving when you put them in the blue dumpster and they are in a tied plastic grocery bag.
Pen Space & Shavings
Your bird should be basically using your entire pen.
