    I have been all my coturnix quail the wrong thing. I feed themn Purina Game bird Startena. I just found out that it is medicated. Is this bad? I also feed this to my breeders. It has 30% protein. Is this too much? Thanks.

    No % of protein is too high! [​IMG]

    And, medicated will cause sterility in males, and other nasty problems later, so I wouldn't reccomend it. See if you can get the same thing minus the medication? Good luck!

    The protein level is fine.

    the medicated is what I am worried about in your case.
