    I have one baby quail almost 4 weeks, but he looks like 2 weeks. I feed him crushed wild bird seeds, earth worms for more and lettuce sometimes. He healthy and very active but slow growth. Any one know why. Thanks

    Do you have a picture? I would feed him a more appropriate diet . I beleive its called game bird feed. That way your positive he is getting proper nutrition.

    I would go buy some game bird feed. That way he has everything he needs for healthy feather growth and body growth.
    They need alot that just seeds and worms will not offer.
