    My wife is a school teacher and one of the kids there brought these chicks and turned them out. My wife was told they were quail but I dont know. I have never seen yellow baby quails. Oh and is this ok to keep them in and what to feed them all I have is medicated chick feed.

    Look like A&M's to me. They should be eating non medicated gamebird/turkey starter

    No turkey starter? Grind the kitten food it will work mixed with non medicated food

    Nope all they had was chicken feed. What will the medicated kind do to them?

    Thanks for your help. This is kinda spur of the moment stuff . My wife said the little boy has been bringing them to school all week hid in his bookbag. The school finally called his dad and talked to him about it.
