So Ive noticed, maybe its just in my head, that I can "taste" the processed food I feed to my quails when I eat them. Personally, I dont like it. So I been feeding my quial a bunch of the cheaper rabbit food I have been getting with rescued bunnies. It has just enough protein in it for the adults, and when ground up makes a nice feed for them. Tonight, I ate 3 quail that had been fed rabbit pellets for a month or so, and they tasted phenominal. The high alfalfa content of the cheap pellets really makes them taste better. I might run the mower over a pile of orchard grass and give them that too, grass/hay really just makes them taste soooo much better. Seriosly, they were startin to taste the way that food smells . . . I fed/feed Purina Gamebird Conditioner. Just food for thought . . .
