    Really?? Never heard of such a thing, interesting. Might want to do some research into fatty-liver disease. It can shorten the life span and they can drop without any warning signs.

    If she was a broiler she probably died of heart issues.
    If I fed that high of protein all mine would be gone.

    Just want to point out that OP stated they're referring to a King Quail hen (aka button quail) so high protein gamebird feed is definitely what's appropriate here.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Silverbird99 :(
