    The only 27% unmedicated food I can find in my area is organic turkey starter. It is high protein has B12 but is a ground feed not crumbles. Will this work?[​IMG]

    While we wait for the heavy hitters to answer the protien question, I would like to ask you what brand you are buying, because I ask my miller for anything close to be considered organic and I get a darned lecture every time about how CRAZY the organic demand is (and therefore I am) .

    I want to satisfy consumers of my quail eggs. That is who is going to be buying in my area, the organic loving folk. And like JJ sais , you already heard my "lil crusade" on non medicated. So that is why I ask you. And I too would like to know if it will suffice, because now I am having trouble getting my miller to order in anything but medicated, darn it all.

    I'll order online and pay shipping for heaven sake. Thanks for asking this. I would like to know. From prior posts and answers I believe it comes darned close to OK if it is all you can get. But I wanna hear from the boys and gals.

    I'm not really a "Heavy hitter" in the protein department, but 27% protein in that department is more than adequate!

    Organic....that remains to be seen. Everything on the face of the planet is "ORGANIC". I can't think of any element that is inorganic.

    I tend to think 30% protein GBS as both high protein and "ORGANIC", but that's just stupid silly me. People really need to define "INORGANIC" materials first!!!

    I'm not really worried about the Organic aspect just whether is is an OK food. Thanks for your opinion.

    I live in Wisconsin and the supplier is Frank's organics. I don't know the name as I have not purchased any yet. I believe it is from a local feed mill in Cashton Wi.

    Sounds like great feed, unmedicated (a plus) and 27% is only 1% less than Gamebird starter. Go for it [​IMG]
