Here go the questions..... What is the best breed of quail for a beginner? What is their lifespan? I read in the sticky that someone "moves out birds over a year old for newbies"...does that mean you release them into the wild? Can they survive having not ever been in the wild before? Where do you buy the correct food for them since they can't eat chicken crumbles? How often do they need cleaned out? I notice most people have wire flooring in the cages. Is there a reason for this? Does it not hurt their feet? Are they pretty easy to tame (in other words, do they allow you to hold them. My chickens love to be held)? Why do YOU raise quail?
