Anyone keep quail outdoors in cold weather climates? - Page 2

post #11 of 15

good luck with the quails, if you have a budget, i suggest try local tip, waste/recycle centre, not shore what you call them in usa, you can pick up plenty of stuff for free. also we have local council pick ups in sydney australia, its amazing what people throw out that can be re-used. just a suggestion. good luck with it all. cheers sam

I am in Anchorage Alaska. Mine are outside making fertilizer for my garden. They are in a fabric greenhouse. No heat. I do turn a light on for them in the afternoon. I mix the seed with suet in the winter and feed alot of kitchen scraps. I use a travel bowl for dogs. It has a wide rim to keep them out of the water. Buried in the deep litter it rarely freezes. Next winter they will be in bins on the ground.
I have lived almost everywhere and LOVE Alaska. Hubby. 4 grown kids and a 6 year old. Mastiff mix, JRT, 3 queens, an aquarium, a (*&^%$#@ proudcut Morgan gelding and 5 Buff Orpies!

I'm in Victoria, and we get - 3ish degrees C and I'll be getting coturnix in march, possibly

Pharaoh, Australian, Rosetta, and Tuxedo Coturnix, a trio of Lady Amherst's and a pair of Palawan Peacock Pheasants

-Chickens and Quail are NOT compatible. Chickens can carry diseases as well as trample them. Don't say I didn't warn you!

-Check the stickys before you post!!!!!

- If anyone's interested in fly tying, here's some recepies I came up with for poultry/quail feathers

Is this a trick question?Quial are gamebirds and live in the wild.We domesticated them.If left outside yearround most all birds will acclimate to their area.I have cockatiels and diamond doves that live outside yearround and they are healthy and fertile birds.Their pen is entirely covered in poly and xmas trees are placed in their pen for roosting in the branches,but they seem to choose their feed cups and crap in their food.The doves are still laying eggs,well ice eggs,and their still trying to set on the eggs and hatch them.I don't think they will hatch,but you can't convince the birds that.I pull the eggs and they lay more.

In N.H.,Tony
