    What Color Will They Be?

    I just set eggs and if they hatch what color will the chicks be? Here are the roos I call this color Scarlett, but is that right? His back got beat up when he was in my pheasant coop with other male quail. He's in with the hens now.

    Drinking nipples for quail.

    I wish to utilize horizontal drinking nipples for my jumbo coturnix. This being a half-cooked notion, I looked around the interwebs and found a cheap bag of no-name, plastic threaded ones. These seem way, way too tight for my quail to use. I could see chickens using them, but… nah, not quail...

    I plan on getting a new quail should I tame the new quail first? or socialize her with my other quail so they get along first before taming

    The other Quail is a tame female coturnix quail named Oak, last year her only friend another female quail died, we planned on getting her another quail but decided not to, recently I haven't been able to give her all of my attention and I know Oak gets lonely and she is a social bird, so we plan...

    What is the best Coturnix quail feed

    Hey! I've been going thru and finding different feed info and I KNOW I'm overthinking it. Can you guys help me out a bit and let me know what food you feed yours with? And what extras or 'snacks' they enjoy having in their diet in addition to the normal feed ? I found the starter grower I...

    What to feed quails of mixed ages, sexes and laying? Tractor Supply ed.

    We have coturnix quails. We'll be introducing the new quails to our outdoor run/coop as soon as they're old enough (right now they're 5 weeks old) and since they'll eventually be sharing the same food with the older quails, I'm wondering what they can ALL eat? The only feed store near me is...

    Introducing a new quail

    I keep quails as pets, I've only had 2 birds so far and they were 2 years old. One passed away this August, leaving the other one lonely. I tried to get an old friend for her, but I couldn't find anyone who sells their older birds so I got one that's about 2 months old. I'm afraid they won't get...

    Brown cheek, just a coincidence?

    Hi! I have this gray coturnix male, 4 weeks now, with brown cheek just as the feather sexable types. The father is white, and mother cinnamon tuxedo (not feather sexable). Do you think it is just a coincidence he looks like a feather sexable bird? It would be great to breed him to maintain this...

    Can quail use this waterer?

    Hey everyone! Will coturnix quail be able to use this waterer? Alternatively can anyone suggest something I can use that will hold enough water that it won't need refilling every day for around 10 quail? Thanks in advance!
