    I have a male pharoa quail and was told to feed him wild bird seed. Is there anything else I can give him...for treats?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    You should feed him feed him gamebird 24% feed. Millet is a great treat for quail.

    Gamebird feed has too much protein for Pharao(Cortunix) Quail, they are gamebirds but have the needs of a laying hen since they have been domesticated for so long. Layer crumbles should be sufficient.
