I feed my quail chicks on Garvo chick starter crumb then go onto the quail feed, but do the changeover slowly (little by little add quail mixture to their crumbs) water all the time and I also hang millet branches to keep them occupied and they are full of protein. As for being bonkers - none of mine have been, but I've handled them every day from the start, so I don't have crazy birds at all - far from it - they are totally mature sexually at 6 weeks and should start lating about then too - be hard and don't leave many males with the girls, that is maybe why they are wild - trying to get away from the boys!!
