    How often and how much should I feed my laying quail?

    I think quail should be fed free choice, with a refilling feeder so they always have food available. For laying females it would be good to also have a small bowl of ground up oyster shells for calcium (also free choice).

    Thanks for the information. At present I feed them twice a day....morning and evening.

    Twice a day is probably fine instead of free choice as long as they are getting enough to eat. [​IMG]
