Finally got the ok from the parents to get some quail! Im going to get five or six coturnix quail to start off with one male two females. I have been reading a lot about them on the internet and have gone through page after page of post on here. I just have a couple of questions to make sure im doing this right. Even though Im just getting five or six to start off with im going to build the cage 2'x8' and only make it 18" high using 1/2 inch hardware cloth. I know its getting cloe to winter and being cold so do I need to build a house or coop for them to go into. I live in Alabama so it doesnt get as cold here as some places even though we did get snow last year. After I get the cage built is it too late to get Coturnix Quail will I have to wait till spring to get some? I want them for eggs and meat. So when I do start processing them and replace them with the eggs that I hatch from them will I need to seperate the brothers and sisters so they dont inbreed or is that ok. I think im going to get the Brinsea incubator just the one that holds like twelve eggs im hopefully not going to be dealing with thirty or forty birds. Any other tips would be appreciated thank you for the help in advance!
