Hi,

 

I'm new here.  My name is Diane and I live in Louisiana between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.  Currently I am in swamp land, but I was raised in the city so raising chickens, or in our case, quail is new.   I remember my dad raised some chickens when I was a kid, but I was not involved.  We have yet to start our endeavor, pretty much gathering information right now.   I started reading over the quail forums today and I'm learning a lot.   Our plan is to raise for eggs.  The SO loves pickled quail eggs and they are getting harder to find.  So far we have been given a chicken coop that sits off the ground.  I'm told we can probably raise 75-100 quail in it, but that is not our intention.  We are planning to start off with a dozen to see how it goes.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi welcome-byc.gif Diane

Glad you could join the flock! I've hatched and raised some cortunix quail in the past and they were fab little birds to keep. I really enjoyed them and I'm sure you will too. There is a lovely quail section in the learning centre that has some great articles. Here is the link if you have not already checked it out ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/other-backyard-poultry-ducks-quail-turkeys-geese-etc

Wishing you the very best of luck in the future.
