Hi there,

Firsty, I have three quail. One silver male, silver female & brown female.
They live in a raised rabbit hutch type house that is boink proof. They have shelves and hidey holes and a floor of wood shavings/chips. It is 120cm and 50cm across.
Firstly, Is this big enough for a trio? I feel it is not, but other quail owners keep trios in even smaller houses.

Secondly, I feed them chopped lettuce, grass, silverbeet and brocilli. Also a boiled egg now and then.
However as there main diet they have specially made quail crumble, 24% protein and 3% calc, however they rarely eat it! It's small enough, try feeding them it in all sorts of ways, but they continue to starve themsleves till i cave and give them millet seed. What can you recomend...? Chick pellets blended up?

Thank you!
