    I'm feeding my quails Nature Wise Meat Bird crumbles and they don't seem seem to be eating them. Any suggestions?

    Fermenting them might make them more palatable. Just look up 'fermented feed' and there are articles on Backyard Chickens, usually relating to chickens but it's just the same for quail. My quail love their fermented feed.

    If this is new to them it can take a while for them to adjust to the food. You should introduce new foods to them a bit at a time mixed in with the old food. Good luck
