One of my readers nils, who is a quail breeder, emailed me some information about quail layers mini pellets which I thought was useful information.
I am a quail breeder based in Hampshire and I wanted to let you know that Quail Layers Mini Pellets are now available which are specifically made for quail.
These quail layers mini pellets can be purchased via Marriages however you have to check on their website to see who the nearest stockist is.
These quail pellets are not medicated as its for birds that are laying eggs.
The recommended feed guide for quail:
Chicken Crumb – 0 – 3 wks (but grind it for them for first couple of days)
Growers Pellets 3 – 6wks (Turkey are best as they have a high protein content of approx 22% but also once again not always available – only avail July to Dec as most suppliers stock them for turkeys)
Quail Layers Mini Pellets – 6wk onwards” Nils
Thanks Nils for this informtion about quail layers mini pellets.
