I think if you are new to raising Quail, it would be best to start either with the Coturnix japonica, or Japanese Quail, or the so-called "Button Quail" which I am reading are really misnamed, for they are really the Chinese Painted Quail. The true Button quail is not a quail at all (pg 26, "Keeping Quail" by Katie Thear) but is in the rail and crane family.
There are actually two books on quail that I found. One is Katie Thear's "KEeping Quail". THe other is "Quail Breeding Manual" by "Unknown Author", by Cornell University LIbrary Digital Collections.
The Coturnix quail can easily be raised in a rabbit hutch, about 2.5 by 3 feet in size will house about 6-7 quail. They need about 1 sq ft each bird. I took a class in raising quail, and the instructor showed us a picture of a quail cage setup made of a dog carrier! They can be kept either indoors or outside. They need to be protected from cold drafts. I really recommend you get Katie Thear's book, it covers most everything you need to know. Quail need a higher protein diet than chickens. A good mix for their feed is as follows: 6 parts turkey starter crumble, 6 parts sunflower chip or meal, 2 part dove and quail seed, 2 part soybean meal, 1 part oyster shell, 1 part flax seed, 1 part kelp meal, 1 part probiotics. I haven't found the probiotics or kelp yet. I was taught in my class that though you can have females only and get unfertilized eggs, the birds are happier with mixed sex groups, in which case you want 1 male for each 3-5 females (though elsewhere on this forum they say 1 male for 5-7 females). You then get fertilized eggs which you can either eat or hatch in an incubator. Quail aren't very good moms: my teacher said that Coturnix japonica actually cannot reproduce without human aid now, they don't hatch their own eggs.
