Marsdens provides feed for all life stages of the Game Bird from Pre-Breeder to the Grower and Rearer phase.
The Marsdens Starter Feed Regime
The Marsdens regime consists of:
The regime is suitable for both Partridges and Pheasants. The very small 'Super Fine Crumb' is ideal for smaller Partridges and helps avoid 'starve out'. The Marsdens 'Fine Crumb' is small enough for feeding on days 4 and 5 onwards.
Marsdens Early Grower
Early Grower is designed to follow the Starter diet when feeding poults in the rearing field.
The diet comes in two forms:
Marsdens Early Grower is the ideal diet for feeding poults being put to 'wood' or 'cover crop'. The high protein content is designed to encourage continual strong growth of the poults when they are at a vulnerable time.
Marsdens produce two feeds for growing ducklings which are both formulated with the mallard in mind.
The Starter Crumb - 20% protein
The Starter Crumb comes in a standard sized crumb form. It should be fed for the first 3 weeks.
The Duck Grower – 18% protein
At the beginning of week 4 the ducks can change from Crumb to Duck Grower. The 18% protein diet will produce a strong mallard at 6 weeks, ready for the switch to grain.
