    Im going to try hatching some quail eggs. I was wondering what they eat the first few weeks. Will I be able to get it at my local pet store like petsmart/petco/petlands discounts? If so what brand is it called?

    My baby quail ate NON MEDICATED chick starter, purchased at the feed store. I also ground up gamebird crumbles in the food processor, some people use old coffee grinders. Make sure you put pebbles in the water, they will fall in and drown. Good Luck!
