I can offer some quail eggs, i am about to process a pen of older quail, i only get about 4 eggs a day from the pen, but i can save them up if wanted..
i have 2 lemon cuckoo orp's that would go nicely with the roo offered in earlier post. both hen's about 10 weeks old.
What type of quail wingstone.... and if you didnt figure out by now, I am always full of questions : ) if u have time!!.......regular size cot's, mixed colors
can you keep males together? I have not had problems with this, but others have
any special winter needs?Mine are indoors, others throw tarps over them when windy or raining, by inside i mean they are moved into the barn in winter.
how long until processing? depends on feed, when I feed gamebird starter it is anytime after 8 weeks for good size, if I use flock raiser the whole time then it takes about 10 weeks
do you clean them like a dove?pretty much so, I skin them so it is fairly quick
Do they also give 1 egg a day? or is it seasonal? right now I get an egg a day, I would imagine if you keep light on them they would continue thru winter, but I raise for meat not eggs so I never really paid attention to this.
are they easy to hatch in a bator? i joke that you could put quail eggs in a bowl out in the sun and they would hatch, they are often the only thing to survive when I get temp spikes in the incubator
LOL told u!!
You ROCK!! now more!!! I could look it up online, but I have soooo found it more productive to ask someone who does it!! Take incubation for instance! lol i forget if you popped in the thread I started http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/704328/diary-notes-air-cell-detatched-shipped-eggs but you would laugh at how much research I did only to find I knew nothing! lmao!
can a small coop and covered run cage work?you do not need a run for quail, or a tall cage, they pop straight up when startled and many break necks if they can get the momentum so i keep cages low.
What size fencing wire works for them?small as you can get, quail are escape artist and very hard to catch
will they roost at night and go in like chickens so I can close them up so the weazels dont get them?never had any roost, I keep them in a wire bottom cage with a removable pan under it, and a small platform area with a box of sand for them to get off the wire
do they have any personality like a few of my chickens have? just praying you say no so I dont befriend them!mine stay on the wild side. a few will calm down when picked up but most do not.
I can only answer by what works for me, just like chickens everyone seems to have different ways of doing things.
as far as detached air cells go i never have much luck with those.
