    You could go pick seeds & catch bugs for them.

    ETA: Mine freak out if I put a bug in with them though. They run to the far corner of the cage until it is gone. I guess they are wired birds but they still taste good.

    I feed Dumor Chick Starter to my layers, and Purina Startena to my chicks. I know that you can get organic feed from Purina, but I don't know of any others. Does anybody know how much protein the organic feed has?

    To The Best Of My Knowledge Unless Its Medicated All Feed Is Pretty Much Organic In The Gamebird Lines--- Now Thats Pretty Generalized When You Consider All The Lil Feed Companies Out There In Other Regions... But Purina, Manna Pro, Nutrena--- The Big Boys That Sell Nation-wide Most Of What They Sell Is Organic. Pretty Much The Only Additives In Gamebird Feed Is Medicated Feed Which Is Usually Either Broadspectrum Antibiotics, Or Coccistat Agents(which Arent Approved For Use In Quail In The 1st Place)
