A New Standard for Frozen Quail
We work to provide the best frozen quail on the market for high performance raptors. We’ve taken a look at the biochemical level to see what can give quail meat the same nutrient density as wild game. Our approach is to use husbandry practices that mimic parts of nature and allow birds to exercise. We have our feed custom milled, and use the highest quality breeding stock available. With this standard, our quail make a great protein source for most birds of prey and other carnivores, giving them the nutrients they need during the high energy hunting season or for breeding.
Raised Specifically for Birds of Prey
We start by feeding our quail a high quality game bird ration to ensure that their eggs are produced with the right micro-nutrient levels for healthy chick development. While growing, we give the chicks free access to a game bird grower diet enriched with Vitamin E, Copper, and Manganese. We raise EcoQuail to approximately 185 g, an efficient size for meat production. We raise Premium Quail to maturity at approximately 225 g or 6-8 weeks, allowing them to develop ossified bones, nutrient dense meat, and accumulate important fat-soluble nutrients.
Our research suggests that this combination creates a very high quality food source for birds of prey compared to other more cost effective methods used to raise quail. Our customers have told us that they can literally see the difference in the frozen quail meat, and we like to think their raptors notice the difference, too.
Bird of prey experts such as the Peregrine Fund have used quail for up to 60% of their raptors’ diets, so we are proud to recommend our Premium Frozen Quail as a staple food source for all birds of prey and other carnivores, and our EcoQuail as a supplemental food source.
