Hi guys, Since I got rid of my ducks I have this big Pen left over,So I'm thing about putting a couple quail in there but it has a concrete floor, is that bad for the quail? Im going have a bunch of natural perching branches, I'm going to find them doing at the end of my street.That brings up another question, do quail like to perch? And I want to get cotournix quail so all there questions are for them. Hey that brings up another question
were can I get cotournix quail in small numbers? Because the hatcheries have a MINIMUM of 100 chicks. I dont want 100 chicks, all I want is about 10 being some might now make it. so do you know were I could get small numbers of quail? whether there chicks or adults I dont care.(no eggs!)Thanks

You can buy coturnix hatching eggs in small numbers from hobby breeders, same with chicks and adult birds just ask around


Concrete wont kill quail, but if i were you i'd put some sort of bedding down for them so they arent walking on that all the time it may sore up their tootsies lol! I would worm them once a mnth in this sort of set up to be safe though if they can get any contact with the ground it's best to.
