Hey All!! I'm considering raising some Coturnix quail this spring and I'm starting to put together some information about how to keep and raise them. Everything that I've found so far says that they have to be raised in a covered pen (which makes sense) and they need a higher protein feed but otherwise it sounds a lot like raising chickens, am I right?? My chickens were recently moved into the barn in a remodeled horse stall (put wire around the top of it up to about 6inches from the top). They are right on the floor and I'll be laying sawdust and then pulling it out and replacing it every few months... Would this work the same for the quail? I'm planning on... 1) starting them in a plywood brooder with a heat lamp and increasing the size as needed 2) moving them to a tractor-type enclosure that I can move around the yard and... 3) putting them into an enclosed stall with lights for the winter. Depending on what other people think I may skip the second step and move them right into the barn... The chickens will be free-ranging all next summer. Thanks for any input!
