    I am new to quail and have 24 that I hatched out. They are now about 5 weeks old and seem to be doing well for the most part. I have had problems with the feeders I built from some cheap plastic storage containers not holding enough food (I'm having to fill them two or three times a day. I would like to get it to down to one time a day if possible. Are quail best fed just giving some food a couple times a day or do they need to have continuous supply?

    Second question, could you share pictures of your homemade quail feeders? I have my quail in four cages and have built my feeders to attach to the outside of the cages and am using pop bottle waterers (awesome deal if you haven't seen them). I would like to come up with something that holds a bit more food and still manages to keep waste to a minimum. Would love to see what you have come up with.
    Thanks in advance!
