    I recently built this hutch for my jumbo cotornix quail. The second story is a planter box that the birds do not have access to. Under the box is an enclosed section the I have filled with bedding. I built this thinking the birds would use this area to sleep but so far they have been sleeping in...

R seems to be frightened and tends to find a cozy corner to sit in. The male (P) and other female (B) don’t...

    House / Pet Quail !?

    I happened upon an instagram page featuring a friendly tame house quail. (@fathetfarms) Looking at types of quail online, I figured out that it is a Mearns / Montezuma quail. I've become fascinated with the idea of a tame pet quail, but I'm wondering if this is actually something that is doable...

    Has anyone kept Stubble Quail (Coturnix pectoralis)?

    Has anyone kept Stubble Quail (Coturnix pectoralis)? They are a native Australian Quail in the Corturnix family. I have seen a few posts on here but sadly no one followed up with any information and they are quite outdated.

    Encouraging Laying Quail…

    Ideally... in my mind's eye In small spaces; Free roam/greenhouse/etc....... Aviary/ Runs/ Pens/ Hutch/Nesting box; safe place to lay an egg away from Roo’s area coverage ( a dark spot to hide) Rollout cage: forced conditions and no choice to lay in place Give the Roo’s a time of separation...

    Best Quail Cages

    I have looked at cages from Wylona Ranch and Hatching Time cages. I know that neither is rat-proofproof due to the egg rollout. What if I put the cages in a shed? In the other half our chicken coop we have a walk-in storage like shed. Is it bad to have chickens and quail relatively near eachother?
