Hello! I have raised chickens for 7 years now. My husband and I are looking onto raising quail. We will start with just raising them for eggs but would like to progress to hatching our own eggs. We have an old chicken run that I would like to reuse as a quail run. I am seeing differing opinions about raising quail on the ground. if they are moved regularly (2- 3 days or as needed) will they still have a high chance of getting worms? When I cant move them, like in winter I would prop the tractor up off the ground so the cage will be cleaner. Does this sound like an ok idea? if not, what would you change?
Second, if we are hatching our own eggs how would we go about giving them vaccinations or do they not need any of that? Do not want to introduce any diseases.
Thank you for your time!
