Quail newbie here

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

As I mentioned in the quail section I just found this forum and joined.  I'm the administrator of the SEP Board (Survival and Emergency Preparedness).  That board, just as the name implies, is all about the plethora of topics associated with emergency preparations (food, water disinfection, medical, shelter etc).  We also have a section on self reliance.  As such, I've been making efforts to become more self reliant over the years.  I have a great garden established (for several years now).  We grow lettuce, kale, tomatoes, collard greens, bok choi, herbs, onions and have a lot of fruit trees (orange, fig, Chinese plum, lemon, mango and papaya).

 

 

I raise rabbits for meat and leaned how to built cages.  I built a PVC stand and suspend the cages.  The manure is used for the garden and also with red worms which I grow and collect castings for the garden. 

 

Just got interested in raising quail as I'm not able to have chickens.  The county allows it but the HOA does not.   Doing research led me to this forum and I've already learned a lot.  Made my first couple of posts in the quail section and look forward to learning!

Glad you could join the flock! I'm sure you will enjoy the quail section, lots of keepers there that will be able to help you with all your questions. Quail are lovely little birds to keep. I hatched and raised some cortunix and they were just fab little birds.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Mini lop.  Black and white spots on the does and the buck is brown and white spots.  Pretty big rabbits and suppose to be really good for meat.  Haven't raised a kindle yet as I got them a week before the quail.  Really enjoying the whole thing.
