Our first bag of feed

Here it is - Purina Mills actually makes a specialized feed for our quail! This bag weighs 50 lbs and Joshua didn't have any trouble bringing it in for us. This particular bag is "Startena" which is the starter - it has 30% protein and is medicated. We will feed this to the chicks until they are 6 weeks old. Purina also makes a flight conditioner (19% protein), finisher (20% protein), maintenance chow (12.5% protein), and breeder layena (20% protein) for game birds. So, we shouldn't have to worry about not having the right kind of feed for our birds.
