Correct ration for quails

In the process of growing quails, especially small ones, fast-growing, the optimal ration is important. In this regard, the ideal option is combined feed for quails, the use of which greatly simplifies the menu making up process. The using of brand «Feed & Life», intended for quails, fully meets the poultry daily requirement in nutrients and facilitates the care of it.

Combined fodder composition for quails

In feed mixtures for quails must be in sufficient quantities of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. They provide the chicks with a quick increase in weight, and adult poultry female are allowed to lay eggs well. In this case, the main role in the quails productivity is played by protein.

Depending on the poultry age, the optimal quails feed composition should include a protein of vegetable and animal origin in the following proportions:

  • up to 30 days - 24-27%;
  • from 30 to 45 days - 17-24%.

The food is different in composition for quail-layers and meat-oriented breeds. For the first, the protein content in the ration should be at 21% level of the total amount of quails forage, for the second - at 16-17% level . To quickly gain weight, the quails ration should be saturated with natural fats to the maximum.

Quails feeding regime

Quail chicks should preferably be fed at least 3 times a day at the same time.

Adult poultry for meat should be fed 4 times a day. In last week the combined fodder consumption for quails is increased by 8% compared to the usual daily rate.

There are special norms for quail food, which can not be neglected, if you want to achieve high quantitative and qualitative indicators related to the growing of this poultry.
