Feeding Game Birds: Pheasant, Quail, and Partridge

Some recent information exists on the nutrient requirements of pheasant, quail, and partridge; however, there is a tendency to rely on information for the turkey. A challenge exists in designing game bird diets since birds can be reared for commercial meat production or for hunting preserves. Birds grown for release are not required to grow at the maximum rate, and in many cases achieving a high rate of gain would be detrimental to flight ability.
