hi every one does any one here have snow flake quail ? I hatched some out 15 out of 25. they are about 4 weeks old . I have never had snow flakes only courtex . will these birds be good for eating and eggs. I know I have one male so far he is crowing. and there are 4 white that are smaller not sure if the are snow flake. also I just started them on all flock 20% with added meal worms. I have geese and chickens so it is easier to feed 1 feed. if not what will you recommend. thanks .

Do you mean a snowflake bobwhite? If so, they are a different species to japanese (coturnix) quails. I'm not sure what brand of feed to recommend (unless you're in Australia), but gamebird feed with around 20% protein is usually best. Chickens have different dietary requirements to quails, so they need different food. Any chance you could post pictures of your quails?
