    I forgot to pick up some chick starter at the feed store this past weekend, and I've got 2 quail that just hatched today, and 21 eggs left in the incubator. I've got 28% protein gamebird grower. Is that okay to feed to the baby quail..or do I need to run to the feed store?

    I think or would be fine until you get back to the store. Startena is 30%.
