I bought a beautiful trio of GG yesterday and have some questions. I raised supposedly Texas A&M for a while in the past using a 3 section cage my cousin raised bobwhites in.. Each cage is approximately 24 x 24 and 18 inches high.
Do GG set their own eggs? Do they need a nesting box? In a larger cage can incubated young be put with adults and if so at what age?
My desire is to raise them mainly for meat but save at least one if not two breeding trios. That means a larger cage for sure. Will a TSC type chicken coop work? Is a ground cage better? I keep my chickens behind an electric fence because of predators. I can see that might be a reason to continue with a raised cage.
How many males to females? How many males in a community cage? Do young males become a problem(fighting and such) before they are large enough to eat?
Thanks. I have looked for information on quails but did not have these questions answered for this specific breed just yet.
