    I have 20 guinea keets and 15 chicks comming in the mail next week and someone is bringing me some wild pheasants or quail chicks that lost their mother, they aren't sure what they are so I gues I'll be posting some pics soon lol, anyway what is a feed that all three can eat and grow up well on. What protein level do I need, medicated or non...what meds should I avoid, anything else I need to know?

    P.S. the only wild birds we have here that I know about anyway are ruffed grouse, bobwhites, and ringneck pheasants. So it could be any one of those or wild turkey but I'm pretty sure they would know a turkey from the others.

    24% protein is best for all of them. It wont hurt the chickens that what my Australorps got this year and they are borderline elephants............
