We feed organic and soy free to our chickens, ( for many reasons) . I have not seen any game bird feed here that is organic or soy free. Is there a way to mix your own that could work for quail?
Chickens and quail have different needs as far as feed and of course a very high need for protein. Many people have tried mixing their own feed, but in the end, the feed never meets up with what the quail really need for good health. And making your own from scratch requires a lot of knowledge to exactly what quail truly need for a good diet. A lot of work and expensive.
I spent a bunch of money on Non Corn Non Soy Feed for my chickens. They hated it. Lost weight in the winter and that was the end of that. I actually compared our locally milled gamebird grower to out 20% layer pellet. Close enough that I feed the grower to my bantiees too and save space in the shed.
Wild new world young quail live exclusively on bugs and insects for the first 3 months of their lives. Animal protein is a complete protein, where as some plant proteins are not and are not easily broken down enough in the quail's system to get the most out of it. Hence the need for animal protein in feeds.
