 Post subject: Medicating quail
PostPosted: Tue May 19, 2009 6:04 pm 
I am finally getting my birds, Yeah! One or two small problems. What should I start feeding them, day olds? The other problem is my fly pens are on the ground should I medicate the birds? When? And what should I medicate them with and for?
I have read several places to feed the chicks turkey starter and then I have also ready to use a game bird starter. Or are they one in the same? Any and all replys and help would be great.
Thanks
C&S

if you can get your hands on Turkey Starter the protein content is @ 28%. I use Gamebird Starter @ 24%.

I just got some bw quail chicks 6 wk old last week started them on craked corn that I was feeding my pigeons and I bought some turkey starter Saturday and started the quail on it Sunday and Monday. Today I noticed that their dropping are really attracting flies early in the morning is that and indicator of problems? Should I go back to craked corn? Anybody had a fly problem with turkey starter droppings?
