    Do quail like to eat bsf? I'd like to be able to use bsf for my kitchen scraps and feed them to the quail, if possible.

    okay, did a BSF search... yes you can feed them to quail since chickens seem to go NUTS over them.
    I had never heard of them but i may later do a more complete search and maybe even give them a try. Did you know there is a "BSF forum" that looks real educational "?

    I wasn't sure if the bsf were maybe too large for the quail to eat. I guess they could rip them apart the way chickens do mice or snakes.
