I have been asked the questions many times. Do I have to wet my feed to the baby quails? – Answer – NO! Do I have to feed them crumbles only ? – Answer NO! Do I have to feed them anything else ? Answer NO! My birds would eat pellets only – Ansew NO! Etc Etc. Raising small quails is an easy task. Feed them a Quail Starter Mash (Specially formulated for Quails) until six weeks of time, thereafter a quail Laying Mash (Specially formulated for Quails) and NOTHING else. The only exception is that you can blend in two boiled eggs per 500 g of feed for the first two weeks. Should you want to feed them table scraps, do so only to the mature birds.
