Quail cages over a backyard pond?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi , just wondering if anyone has tried putting their quail cages over the water, I have a one acre pond and thought it might be cool to put e few quail cages along the dock , covered of course , to allow their poop to just fall in the water.. I'm only talking about 2 dozen quail , does anyone have any ideas on this ? Any help would be appreciated

Be the same as pouring nitrogen based fertilizer straight into the water. If there is anything in that water you want to live i wouldnt.

quail poop is no more harmful to the water then duck/crane/otter/beaver/fish/turtle/snake/etc... poop.    with 2 dozen quail over an acre pond you'd likely never see any adverse effects, worse case may be a little algae bloom during extreme heat weather.
