    The only thing I could be certain on was that they needed the test tube style waterer to keep them from drowning or dying from being wet.

    They were sold to us with finch food and that was it. After doing reading I knew they needed grit and calcium supliment and got it. But I have no real clue what else they need.

    I was told chicken starter, layer crumbles, commercial egg food, gamebird crumbles, hardboiled eggs ground up with shell, etc.

    What exactly do I need for good healthy buttons and good egg production?
