    How long do you grind up the button quail's gamebird feed? I do grind up shells for them and cat food but was wondering if they would ever be able to eat the gamebird feed as is.

    Quote:My male chick button quail is eating normal sized game bird chick feed now with the other quails and he's a month old. My adults have been eating normal sized game bird feed since they were born from the breeders. I'd say until they are atleast 3-4 weeks old? Maybe sooner but i didnt feel safe doing the switch until then.
