    Abstract

    A feeding device for quail is described that is small and easy to handle, lightweight, and nonspillable. It holds a 5-day food supply for adult paired coturnix (Coturnix coturnix) and minimizes fecal contamination. Although the feeding device was designed for use with quail in breeding cages, it could be modified for other test situations or bird species.
