Do you feed eggs? Eggs are a wonderful addition to the raw diet. Eggs are considered to be a complete food source. After all, the contents of an egg contain everything needed to grow a new life.
Although I feed chicken & duck eggs as well, quail eggs are my favorite! They are a cute little egg that are a real nutritional powerhouse. Their small size makes them a great addition to a pet of nearly any sizes diet without adding too many calories. I rarely use anything other than quail eggs in my cats meals because they are just the perfect size for a cat.
According to a study in the International Journal of Scientific and Research Publications, eating quail eggs supports healthy organ function throughout the body. They are even thought to have properties that can fight disease & purify the body.
These eggs may be small, but good things can come in little packages! The quail egg contains six times more vitamin B1, fifteen times more vitamin B2, and have been demonstrated to contain significantly more vitamin E.
?? Does your pet suffer with allergies??
If so quail eggs could actually help. The ovomucoid protein present in quail eggs is considered an anti-allergenic. Think of it like natures anti-histamine. Plus, this protein is said to boost the immune system.
The quail egg is a neutral egg. For comparison, a chicken egg is acidic, and a duck egg is alkaline. This means it can safely be incorporated into both a warming or a cooling diet for those who follow traditional Chinese medicine.
The quail egg is considered a "safe" egg. Due to the quail having a higher body temperature and the egg containing the enzyme lysozyme this isn't an egg that can harbor salmonella. In fact humans regularly consume raw quail eggs for their notable health benefits.
Do I really love quail eggs? Yes!! As a matter of fact I love them enough to have 2 years ago started raising my own quail so we always have an ample supply of these awesome little eggs.
So, if you've never tried quail eggs go out & get yourself a dozen, or 4 to add to your pets diet. They are the perfect little addition to your homemade diet or even commercial pet food diet.
Until next time... Happy egg eating!!
