Peanuts

Postby gd01 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 4:57 pm

I gave my young birds peanuts tonight with their regular feed. It was pretty funny watching them try to figure out how to eat them. I probably should have chopped them a little the first time or so. It will be interesting to see if they are eaten by morning. They looked like chickens chasing them around. :D

[quote="gd01"]I guess I need to try again I dumped them after a few days, I will offer them again. :D[/quoOf They will learn to eat them sooner or later, after trap traning or first stages of loft flying give them some :D they will learn to eat them and once they do! they will be quick to trap in the loft hoping there are peanuts for the taking! 8-) also try hand feeding them some. they learn to earn your trust and will eat them out of your hand that is a rewarding feeling! :D .

Peanuts work great in racing feed, I used peanuts last year in YB racing, fed to them few days before the longer harder races, they don't seem to come home thirsty either when fed peanuts. I buy my peanuts at Asian food stores, they come shelled, unroasted & unsalted and they still have the red skins still on them. I try to buy the smallest size peanuts. I don't use hemp seed or saffower seed peanuts are what I use. I recommend peanuts.

Peanuts are extremly high in protien over 40%, another issue is that they are just as high in Fat content. I feed them to my breeders to get them nice and fat for feeding young.

one thing to watch out for in peanuts is you must only feed raw meaning unroasted. peanuts catch bacteria super fast once they dry out or have been roasted so its best to feed raw, also if you are keepin a lot on hand make sure they are in a sealed container.

I feed peanuts daily and the birds love it, Corn, Peanuts, millet, black sunflower really all the breeders get.

Just remember though, if they go from warm to freezing you'll be trapping humidity in the peanut.
