I currently have 25 Jumbo Brown Cortunix Quail which I recently hatched from Lake Cumberland Game Birds (started with 50 eggs). Hatched July 19th so they are about 5 weeks. Plan to cull the males. I currently have them in the bottom of my cockatiel cage which measures 7 feet long by 2 feet wide. The cockatiels stay to the top and the quail keep to the bottom and have not had a problem there. The quail are pecking each other, but maybe this will change when I cull some males. Plus, no one would know the quails are there. It looks like a big bird cage. Right now I don't have much space on my patio, so hopefully I can keep them this way. I live in Anaheim, CA, close to Disney so you can imagine. Will need to make a few changes to make egg gathering easier. I see suggestions that they should be kept 3 to 1 male in small cages. Will probably keep some breeders this way for hatching eggs occasionally. Any ideas on how my current large cage will work? I prefer that they have some run space but also want to get some eggs.
