    Hi everyone

    i was thinking of vitamins and supplements for quails and have the following easily accessible.
    Can someone knowledgeable tell me how i should use them and in what schedule (how many times a week)
    Also comparatively which brands are the best?
    I want to have the birds healthy as they get only 22% protein and im not familiar with mixing my own feed so i thought i can give them the extra amino acids with the following supplements

    Be careful feeding supplements. The fat soluble vitamins can build up in their systems to toxic levels if over-fed. A, E, D and K are all fat soluble vitamins. If you are feeding a "complete" feed and you want to up the protein you are better off feeding something that will not artificially increase the fat soluble vitamins. You can just add soy bean meal if your feed store will order it for you or ground dehydrated meal worms.

    Hi Sill,

    Thank you for your reply. In order to be safe, can you give me a schedule and name some brands from above. Ex: vit sp total - once a week, g pro min - twice a week

    Also should i mix soy bean meal so that protein % is at 27% approx or what should the mixing proportion be?

    Sorry for the many questions :)

    Cat biscuits fish flavoured are a high protein. Add that to some corn mashed up you can also give wet cat food mixed in fish flavoured. Meal worms as well and chicken layers pellets mashed up. No need for tablets
