Feeding Texas A&M Quail

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

How often and how much should I feed my laying quail?

post #2 of 4

I think quail should be fed free choice, with a refilling feeder so they always have food available. For laying females it would be good to also have a small bowl of ground up oyster shells for calcium (also free choice).

17 pigeons, 15 coturnix quail, 2 roos, 6 hens. Also 5 drakes, a CCL roo that thinks he's a drake, a fat bearded dragon and 2 angora rabbits.

 

Current projects are Cinnamon Legbars (chocolate gold), chocolate/brown pigeons and silver/brown coturnix quail. My next project is a dark chocolate colored chicken with deep red/gold base that lays bright green eggs. Yes, I like the color brown.

Thanks for the information. At present I feed them twice a day....morning and evening.

Twice a day is probably fine instead of free choice as long as they are getting enough to eat. :)
