    You can also inquire at your city or town hall. Better to know first than getting a raid from animal control.

    Are you in the "Boise area" or inside the Boise city limits?

    So, I got curious and just had to go a-googling.....ironically, there is NO mention of quail anywhere in the ordinances for animals/animal control, however, the following ARE specifically listed in the "prohibited animals" regulations under "birds" ...... thank you for a good giggle because I have to figure to be that specific it means someone, sometime has TRIED it....the penguins and flamingos are what got me.

    Anyway- I would suggest contacting the city clerk's office as that is whom is listed as the source for the ordinances, they can either answer for you directly or transfer you to the office that can
