    24% will work fine. From what I have read and experienced anything 20% and higher is good for quail.

    Quote:Sorry, I forgot to say where. Go to purnimills.com and over in the left margin above the fold is a zip code box that will allow you to locate a PM dealer based on your zip code.
    Most should have phone numbers to the closest dealer. Simply start with the closest, call and ask if they stock purinamills game bird starter. If they don't then ask if they can order it for you. If they have it in stock, then go get it. If not, and they are not willing to order it, then go to the next dealer, and so on.
    You may actually have to ask if it is stocked, or request it to be ordered. Don't be shy, and don't expect to see a bag of it displayed next to the hot new horse feed, or overpriced organic dog food.
    You have to ask for it.

    But don't bother with the TSC store.... [​IMG]
    They only carry what you see and will not order anything extra.
