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.
