I am starting to hatch some coturnix quail right now. We have 2 so far with many more eggs moving and shaking.. My question is what should i feed them when they go to the brooder? I have a gamebird mash that i am feeding my older quail, can i use this?? I am a newbie to quail, thank you.

You need to get some gamebird starter food. If you can not find quail starter, you can use turkey starter. Feed stores a variety of feeds. Something with 28% to 30% protein. Quail need a very high protein feed all their lives.
