Hi babypeas - congratulations - at 6 months old, your babies are all grown up.

They shouldn't have any problems eating whole corn or grower pellets, or whole peanuts. (Mine love peanuts.) They also like raisins a lot. When I give them a mixture of dried fruits, each bird has their favorite. The oldest male picks out the mango first, the oldest hen goes for the coconut, and their daughter looks for the pineapple. So much fun.

Has it been to cold to work on the pea palace?

Hey guys, been offline for a while but was worried that my peas wern't eating well! then my brother-in-law bought a BS male and female from a "professional" breeder my boys are so much heathier I could'nt believe it! needless to say the BS's are in my green house since they had no shelter for them! they were just going to turn them loose in a 140 acre fenced elk enclosure, not on my watch! I don't need another male but what could I do, the owner is a procrasitnator so they'll be around awhile, I'm feeding mine a mix of scratch grains(cracked corn,whole buckwheat,sunflower,whole oats and grit)layer pellets and since thier in with the horses what ever they drop(they get whole spelts, beet pulp and a 12% protien molasses sweet feed)plus frozen veggies and peanuts and they are healthy and happy. Suzy
