Just curious on what everybody feeds their quail, from "fuzzball" stage on up to maturity?? The breeder I bought my hatchlings from sent me home with a bucket of his feed & reccomended I use a feed available at a local feed store (Kent Feeds' Poultry 27, has 27% protein). They are 12 days old & doing well on it so far....I had 100, lost a handful in the first few days but they seem to have stabilized....I have about 75 left with no deaths in 5 days- and they're starting to FLY now!! What kind of food does everyone else feed? I'm curious partly because I frequent other farm stores for other necessities, not that the feed store is out of the way, but it's an extra trip sometimes....it'd be nice to fit all my errands into fewer trips. But I don't know which other feeds are suitable for quail, I'm just sticking with what the breeder told me for now! Do you feed adult quail anything different than you feed growing quail, or do their protein needs stay the same as adults? Is there a difference in feed requirements if the quail are being used for breeding, eggs, meat or what have you? Mine are mostly going to be for dog training, but I may pick a few breeding pairs & see if I can hatch a few eggs, just for grins & giggles. Thanks in advance for your input!!
