    My quail are due to hatch on Friday and because of a delay in shipping their food won't be here until Wednesday ! Is there anything I can give them until then that I may have around the house ? Ground oatmeal , yogurt, mashed eggs ?

    All those. They need high protein so the eggs, some diced meat, fish and some grain of any kind will tide them over.
