Questions & Answers

States that it is a complete feed, but I do not see any B vitamins listed especially Riboflavin which a deficiency of can cause deformities in offspring. Is it just not listed? Or is it mislabeled as complete.

is this good for quail chicks under 8 weeks old?
Answer by ChewySep 15, 2022
This formula can be fed to quail chicks under 8 weeks old.

Does it have everything for a quail to lay eggs that can hatch?
Answer by ChewySep 08, 2022
This formula may be fed to quail laying eggs, but the pearls alone will not provide the necessary amount and ratio of Calcium to Phosphorus to provide the hen with what it needs for egg production. It is recommended to provide your hens with supplemental calcium through appropriately sized grit or oyster shells.

Would this feed be suitable for guinea fowl?
Answer by ChewyJul 22, 2022
This feed is not suitable for guinea fowl.

An acquired taste?

I have just 2 hens and wanted to bulk them up for the winter in Texas, 70 degrees one day and 15 degrees the next. Wanted them to be prepared for the quick drop. One will eat it if it’s the only thing left (I mix it with their regular food) and the other won’t touch it. But the one that does eat it looks much healthier than before.

We wanted to like this so bad

We wanted to like this so bad but the chickens and ducks just refused to eat it. We tried it for a week but after that we had to go out and purchase another bag of their regular food because they just weren’t eating. We LOVE watching Dr.Pol so we really wanted to love his food, unfortunately that just didn’t happen.

Hens not happy

My hens do not like this, I mixed it with other food & it is being used but I think it is the sparrows that are eating it so I have really healthy song birds!

pellets to big for Quail

This seems like a good quality food, and my quail ate it up with gusto. But it was too large and for them to be able to eat it I had to soak it in water. This is labor intensive and not a solution for feeding when it's below freezing.

Doc Pol's Chicken feed

I decided to try this food as my chickens were molting and needed a higher protein food, than their layer crumble. I have to say, they really love it.

Dr. Pol high protein complete bird feed

My chickens won't eat it. I bought if for the high protein to stop feather plucking. It has a weird odor as well.

Bought for turkeys

I put the food out and the turkeys would have none of it. The goose tried to eat it but it was to hard and the pellets wound up in the water. The only ones who would eat it were my adult hens. Since I really needed it for the turkeys, I soaked the pellets in water (1/1), then once soft I added more water, oregano and brewers yeast. At that point, the turkeys gobbled it right up.

Awesome product!

We no longer have to buy layer pellets, oyster shells, scratch feed and mix it all to ensure our chickens get what they need. We have a hen in particular that would eat her eggs as soon as she laid them. We got this food by Dr Pol and she no longer eats her eggs (even with the oyster shells she would still eat her eggs). She lays them and now wants to actually sit and be a mom. Definitely highly recommend! This one bag contains everything our chickens needed!

Best Duck Food!!

I have a VERY picky flock of ducks that have turned up their noses to every expensive or cheap, organic, “natural”, crumble or pellet I could find. We’ve tried 9 other companies. This the ONLY food they have ever eaten without leaving any behind. I highly recommend it. Our ducks have been on this food for more than a year and haven’t lost interest. We occasionally sprinkle a handful of dried worms on top and they are healthy happy giant ducks. Bonus- the pearls float in their pond.

Not as expected.

I will update my stars if King George actually eats it. I purchased thus thinking it was kibble sized. My turkey doesn't want anything but dog food, I figured this would be a great product to switch him to. Imagine my irritation when I opened the bag to find pellets..... would be nice if the advertising didn't make it seem larger than it is. What is that bowl? A hamster bowl? Disappointing... especially since I was foregoing the fact that the first ingredient is soy.
