    I wana get coturnix quail but i can't find a good turkey starter in my area. I live mainly in Stevens Point, WI and i cant find a good turkey starter (26-28% protein content). What are some good brands to go by??

    I just used Gamebird Starter. It is for all types of gamebirds including turkeys. Do you have a feed store near you that will carry that or order it in for you?

    Yeah my feed store doesn't carry game bird starter either so I have always used 26% medicated turkey starter and had good success. I wasn't aware that turkey starter came in protien contents less than that. Turkey starter is a pretty standard item in most feed stores, I'm surprised you can't find any - have you tried asking around at other stores or asking if your store can bring it in for you?
