I am getting a pair of button quail on Wednesday. The breeder feeds southern states game starter feed which is 28% protein. The closest I could find at tractor supply was dumor chic starter feed at 20% protein. Will that drop in protein hurt the quail at all? I am not sure how old they are, but was told they are 'near adult' juveniles old enough to start laying next month. My roommate keeps parakeets and zebra/spice finches, but these are my first quail haha
This is the 55gal I put together for them tonight- the dark rocky think on the right side of the tank is a fountain with running water. Anything I should change or add to it before the babies come??
