Hi Deserteggs, I just watched your video. You have a lot of birds and so many varieties. Pretty flock!

That's great Brentlyboy. I have never had quail. I am thinking it might be a nice bird to downsize to, if I am living in a really small space. A game bird breeder I know says that coturnix quail have been under domestication in Egypt for thousands of years, and they take really well to small spaces, if necessary. I am told you can put a male and three females in one three-foot box, and you'll have a breeding set for a couple of years. Apparently they can lay year-long, as most chickens do, and they lay maybe 160-180 eggs per year. Does this sound like what you've been told? Were you planning to breed? Or, maybe just collect the extremely yummy eggs? Just curious. Thanks!
