    I'm getting ready to start a set of quail eggs in my incubator . Can the babies eat chick starter?

    yes. If you can find a gamebird or turkey starter would be better for them. Since they require a higher protein. But chick starter will be fine if that's all you can find.[​IMG]
     
  3. yeah, the higher the better, you wanna be up in the 25-30% protien for them if possible
