    We are getting 5 new baby Cotunix quails by the weekend that will be a day or 2 old.
    Can we feed them our chicken Dumor Poultry Grower Finisher food or not?

    If not what could i get them possibly?
    Mostly shop at Tractor Supply and we do have local feed stores.
    Thanks

    What is the protein %. Most chicken ones are 18-20 and it should be higher for game birds. TSC should carry Game bird feed.
