    I want to feed my quail organic soy free feed if possible. I'm wondering if they'd be ok on chick starter or some other option than the game bird feed we were given. Thank you!

    Depending on how high protein the chick starter will be I think they should be fine with the occasional (1-3 days) added protein (Scrambled eggs,Bugs,etc..)

    I have added fish food ( 27%) to my layer pellets to up the protein as the super starter crumbs I was adding have antibiotics in them so can't eat eggs when I finally get some in spring hopefully! X :)
