    Hey guys,

    Sorry this probably gets asked a lot and I did have a quick search but would love all my answers in one place.

    We have fattened meat chicks,Cockerels and male quail for eating a couple of years ago and all of them were lovely! Would just like to know what you think is best to fatten quail up

    Thanks in advance

    30% protein from birth to cull, no treats. Fresh water always and minimize stress. I'm assuming that by fattening up you mean big and lean not fatty.

    Perfect, exactly what I've always done and am still doing. Definatley no stress with these guys - so chilled. Yes that's what I mean but generally people tend to use the 'fatten up' term over here

    Thanks for your reply :)
