    If your feed store does not carry Gamebird food, you can use Turkey starter. Hy-Pro makes a good Turkey starter as well as Manna Pro. Both of these brands can be obtained in the southwest here. I use the Manna Pro Gamebird/Show Bird on my quail. It has a 26% protein level and they seem to enjoy the taste better than the Purina brand. Any poultry feed that has at least 24% protein will work. Somewhere between 24% to 28% is what you are looking for. Purina also makes a flight conditioner for quail, which I have used. It only has 21% protein, I think. But my birds didn't care for the taste as much as the Manna Pro feeds.
