I got my quail last September, and intended to keep them outside. After a racoon attack, I moved them into our small garage. Since then, they have picked on each other and I have had to separate them. Now we have two cages in our tiny garage, and they are creating a huge mess. Not to mention what they're doing to each other. I have 12 left and about 3 dozen eggs. We are cleaning/organizing and hoping to either rent out our home or sell it this spring, so we just want our garage back for now.
