    try this for your area... http://horse.purinamills.com/dealerlocator/default.aspx

    your looking for game bird startena, I feed all game birds the startena their entire life. I buy non medicated, but medicated may be all you can get in your area, this is fine too.... Really, any good game bird starter with 24+ % protein will work fine. I like purina and thay have a store locator on line. Bill

    Got a bator? May be easier to buy eggs and have them shipped from anywhere in the country. Just something about hatch'n your own birds... Aint one on my place that wasnt hatched here, by me! lots of birds here too!! Bill

    i do want to hatch them myself but it just seems easier when you buy them when they are young and then when they have eggs, hatch those
