What are your quails favorite treats?
Sugar snap peas in the pod. The chases are on when somebody has a pea pod!
Apple chopped into matchsticks, live dubia feeder cockroaches, dried mealworms, finch seed with fish oil mixed into it, and thawed frozen peas.
Dubias?!? Do you feed them the babies, because I can't imagine my cots eating a full grown Dubia roach.
Yes, i give them the roach nymphs, usually when they're about the size of a pinkie nail. You'd be surprised about what those tiny birds can take down, though! My button roo will peck apart a half-grown dubia and feed it bit-by-bit to his mate. It's very sweet, if sorta gross to watch.
fresh cut greens..yumm
Bean spouts they think they are worms
yep bean spouts, water melon skin, weeds from the garden, boiled rice, 2 minute noodles, what ever left overs i have.
also chicken egg shells! and earth worms when i find them, they get all excited. maggots also.
Thanks everyone! I gave them some kale today, they just walked all over it. I thought fruit is bad for them? What about mealworms?
