Hi All I hope I'm asking this question in the right place. I have been buying Meat meal for my girls. My husband insists (he's an avid gardener) blood and bone is the same thing and lots cheaper. Can anyone advise me on this, I don't want to make my girls sick. Phalara :?

tell hubby they are not the same, meat is dried and shredded meat, etc, blood and bone, is dried meat, blood and bone, then shredded, this is the reason meat meal so more expense.

But saying that, I do not use meat meal because it is pure meat, I get animal grade blood and bone, in 25 kg bag. This last about a year, I use it at moult time, early breeding and thru the whole breeding season, it is the blood and bone I want. The calcium and trace elements that the birds need, especially muscovies. With muscovies I add it to wet bread, from 3 weeks to fully feathered (about 6-7 months old) helps with there rapid growth.

I do not know about garden grade blood and bone, it may have other chemicals in it??

i was talking to the local blood and guts man and he says it is the same thing. he sells it to the chook people as meat meal and the gardners as blood and bone.

I get mine from the butchers, FREE (i do sling him some nice free range eggs for his generosity)

He gives me a bucket x 2 per week I divide it into bags and freeze what i am not going to immediatly use.

It is the Bone and meat (and marrow) from under his large band saw not off cuts or anything grose. it is very fine and moist, I just give it a squeese to pack it together (like a rissole) .

I feed about 2 large handfulls into a dish to each pen about every 2 days.

whilst my silkies turn their noses at it, my Sussex and RIR woof it down like there is no tomorrow.

I have also been giving it to some sussex chicks mixed in with their crumble and they love it!!

I am very creful not to leave any around that is not eaten though, the butcher warned me it goes off very fast.
