    Hi there! I juice celery, turmeric, ginger, and cilantro (all organic). I was going to dump the pulp into the compost as always, but thought my little quail would like a snack of it. Any risk?

    Welcome to BYC!!

    Those food should all be fine (never personally given ginger or turmeric, but others have).
    One tip, start by giving them small amounts to see how they take to it, and remove and clean feeding bowls at the end of the day (or when its gone). Fresh food can spoil quick :)

    I give mine apple carrot pulp, and they eat cilantro and celery greens as well (when i have them).
