Raising Game Birds

 

adapted from the pamphlet Purina Game Bird Programs

 

Starting:  Chicks should be started with a hover temperature of 90° F the first week. Lower it 5° per week for the next three week. In warm weather, heat is usually not necessary after the fourth week. Feed game bird startena ration on paper for the first week. Provide feed in feeders during the 0-6 week period. The following space requrements are necessary:

Linear Feeder Space Requirements Per Bird

Quail

1½ inches

Chukars

Game birds need lots of water to grow fast and stay healthy. Clean fresh water should be provided at times. These are the water space requirements:

Water Space Requirements for Day-Old Chicks

Three 1-gallon water founts will take care of:

Chukars

1 ft. per 25 birds

Housing Requirements:  Good ventilation and adequate space per bird are the most important factors to remember when building a brooder house regardless of the area where you live. A good rule of thumb for ventilation is to provide one cubic foot of air per minute for each pound of body weight. We suggest you talk with successful game bird producers in your state about housing specifications, building flight pens, or other facilities. The following table gives estimates of bird density requirements:

Litter:  To help chicks stay healthy and grow fast, keep the brooder house floor clean & dry. Wood shavings and rice hulls have been used very successfully as litter.
