I'm very new and planning on getting 4 button quails. I'm not sure what dust to use for the dust bath? I'm getting them as chicks, do they need a dust bath as first?
Also, what food should I use? I want organic feed, but I can't find any! Help please.

The food has everything they need from birth to adult females would like some crushed oyster shells or crushed egg shells later when they start to lay as a side snack for then to replenish there calcium from laying, and about 3-5 weeks dust bath/sand bath is fine 5 weeks is the safe range so they are ready for it but don't eat too much of it like dumb babiesi just put the food in a little bullet blender and then it's ready for the buttons
