    Hi, I was wondering how much you buy your feed for. Also how much of it you buy. Do the quail pay for it in the long run?(eggs, chicks, meat,etc... Thanks!

    I pay about $18 for a 50# bag of 24% Chick Starter. I don't know how much the chickens vs. guineas vs. quail eat of it, so I don't know if it is really financially worth it or not. But they are so cute (and so yummy!) [​IMG]
