I bought a pair, male and female Bobwhite Quail about a month and a week ago from a Game bird Farm. They were doing fine until today I went to feed them and the male quail died. I just couldn't believe it! I really love these Bobwhite Quail and don't want this to happen when they die so suddenly and I only have the pair for a month, I was planning on having this pair for this coming Spring for breeding. I just want to figure out what happened so it will never happen again. I could always get more birds if I have too, its the part of having them live long lives, that's the problem. I feed them a Poultry/Gamebird feed that has 22% protein in it, the brand is Manna Pro. I give them a little wild bird seed too. I feed them every other day. I also give them collard greens that i rip up for them before giving it to them. For their water I use liquid vitamins to ensure they stay healthy. Don't understand what happened? Their in a pen all by themselves, their not mixed with other breeds I made sure they were separated. I'm just actually just starting to get back into keeping Bobwhites, I used to have them at least 7 or 8 years ago and they too had the same problem where they all died so quickly. I really want to enjoy raising them again and can't do that if they keep dying on me. I'm not going to give up on this Quail Species. If anyone can help me figure out what happened or what I did wrong and put an end to the loss of these birds, I would be very happy and appreciated!! Thank You!!
