Can you give insight to how old they are, if you hatched them, what your feeding them, a picture of your brooder? Because it could be a number of things. We raise Northern Bobwhites. What kind are you raising?

Try blending their food. We have to blend the crumble in a blender or food processor because it's still to big for them. They may be hungry.

You also don't need to give them anything else to eat until they are older. Blend the chick starter into a very fine crumble. Just keep the food filled and with them all the time in the cage so they can eat anytime they want. Also keep the water filled all the time. Northern bobs drink a lot of water. So I would think all quail will. You only need to blend the food into a very fine crumble for about a week or two. After that they should be able to eat the crumble without blending it.
