Which Quail food is best for feeding my young Quail and older breeding Quail?

We find Haygates to be the best provider of high quality Quail feeds from their well balanced and nutritious Superstarter Crumb for Quail baby chicks to their Quail Layer/Breeder Pellets with 19.5% protein, the perfect food to ensure healthy laying birds and healthy eggs.

At Avian Breeding we specialise in the production of Quail to the Falcon industry, with over 30,000 birds on site at any given time we get through a lot of Quail food! This is why we decided to also offer for sale the same food we use in our own Quail production process.

At 6+ weeks Quail destined to become Layers are fed Haygates Layer/Breeder Pellets, containing 19.5% protein and should be used for at least 5 days before any eggs produced are consumed. This ensures any medication used in the growing of the younger Quail is fully out of their system.

Newly hatched baby chick Quail enjoy Superstarter Crumbs for Quail, a 27% protein superfine crumb with Avatec and fish meal perfect for your newly hatched baby Quail chicks. Avatec is an anti-coccidiostat used to help prevent Coccidiosis.

At 2 weeks old our young Quail continue their journey on Country Chick Crumbs + Avatec. Containing 19% protein this food is perfect for Quail aged 2 weeks and is used alongside grower pellets in the transition to the larger 2mm pellet.

At 3 weeks old the Quail move onto Quail Grower Pellets 2mm to finish. Avatec is no longer included in the feed and the birds will finish thair growth cycle until slaughter or layer designation.

Growth rate is rapid until five weeks of age, thereafter it slows down and adult weight is achieved at about 50 days.

Heygates Game Feeds are manufactured from the highest quality raw materials at Bugbrooke Mill. Heygates have over 40 years of experience of making specialist game feeds and the rations have been developed to be the best on the market.

The natural feed additive Avipro is included as standard across the Heygates range of grower and breeder rations. Avipro is a natural feed additive derived from yeast which improves animal health and performance.
