    Would Purina Mills rabbit food be okay to give button quail? Not as a large part of their diet, just like a treat maybe once or twice a week to add some variety to their diet.

    These are the ingredients: Forage products (alfalfa), wheat midds, roughage products (oat or rice hulls), plant protein products, grain products, molasses products, calcium carbonate, salt, dicalcium phosphate, choline, chloride, DL-methionine, ferrous oxide, magnesium oxide, niacin supplement, vitamin E supplement, calcium pantothenate, riboflavin supplement, vitamin B-12 supplement, vitamin A supplement, vitamin D-3 supplement, zinc sulfate, zinc oxide, manganous oxide, calcium iodate, ferrous carbonate, copper sulfate, cobalt carbonate, sodium selenite.

    I probably wouldnt, just because you can give them fresh greens which are way better than that, chop up non-sprayed grass, lettuces and what not. Rabbit feed would probably make them fat and may not be good at all for them. Now cat food ground up every now and then for htem would be perfect! High protien.
