Feed for young birds


Hello everyone. This is my first post on the forum. I will be racing young birds this fall , and I am needing a good feed mix to race them on. It is my understanding that I would not want to feed a high protien feed during race season. Is this true ? Can someone tell me what exactly needs to be in the feed. Do I get the individual grains and mix my own , or what ? We will be flying on the short end. So all the races should be 100 miles or under. Thanks for the help.

Is there someone in your club that could mentor you? You would need to know local supply and also ratio of feeding as a basic concept, everyone has their own way.

I feed my breeders a 19 % protein and keep the young on that till they are 3 months old, protein being good for feather and bone, after that something like this.

Well not sure if the link worked so just go to Des Moines Feed Co and research what you need. I do like the idea of finding a mentor in the club you will be in.

It prolly wont matter much what % protein you feed since all your races are under 100 miles. That distance wont even make tired unless the just never leave the loft.
