Hi everybody,
I'm currently in the process of raising baby quail, and I was wondering if this food
https://zoomed.com/natural-grassland-tortoise-food/ would be O.K. to feed them. I already have this, so I figured I may as well use it. It wouldn't be the only thing I give them to eat; it would just make up a small part of their diet. The ingredients are in the link posted. I would appreciate it a lot if someone would look through the ingredients list and let me know if it's ok to feed to them.
Thanks for reading this!

Hi there, welcome to BYC! :frow

That would be okay to feed as a treat on a VERY limited basis. It has only 8% protein and baby quail need at least 24% minimum. If you are using a formulated game bird ration... maybe mix this in at NO more than 10% total to keep other vitamins, mineral, and particularly amino acids close to their correct levels.

Or find someone to give that tortoise food to and kinda pay it forward. :)
