    I've got the couple of day old quails on chick crumb so what shall I feed my older quails on?

    Look for the next stage in the store, I buy starter feed or juvenile, not sure what it's called in your country. Make sure they have high protein food and vitamins as well.

    Chick starter is going to cause them to be runted and its probably too late to change that. Chick starter is usually 19-22 percent protein. Quail chicks should be getting 30%. Their organ development may suffer because of the lack of protein. The most important growth for a chick is in the first week. If you can't find game bird starter at least use turkey starter.

    Adults can be fed 20-24% protein.
