I like having the forum to discuss things that come up about quails, but I am seeing the last posts here was in 2007 so I hope someone sees this. I am giving them Purina store bought game bird mix with 20% protein, but is it okay to also give them grass, apple leaves, watermelon rhine Question

A good game bird food has the complete nutritional diet quail should need, I feel it's best to stick with that. However, every situation can be different and the quail may need a little extra help. For instance softening of egg shells, you then may have to add something to their food, such as crushed oyster shells, but this is a rare happening.

Found out along with the game bird crumble feed at the store my wife spoils our Jap Quail by chopping up fine. dandelions, broccoli, tomato leaves, apple, carrot and lettuce. They go nuts to see her coming in the morning with the goodies. They especially like the dandelions, but it definitely needs chopped up.

thanks,
Tom
