So i've never had quail before. But they're awfully cute looking and from what I've read online and talked to ppl i know, more economical than chickens. I buy chicks, feed them for 6 or 7 months before they will lay... These quail will be mature in 6 or 8 weeks... and cost the same grown as my chicks do. A man not far from me has coturnix quail. And i think i'm going to get some. And i have a few questions Do they eat a lot? Will they be fine in rabbit cages? Do I need nest boxes like I would chickens? Can i just use my chick waterers and jar feeders for these?
