    Hey everyone, I'm Oraien. Joined the forums here and the site as it seems there's a lot of info to be had about chooks and similar birds and I am currently contemplating getting a few coturnix quail. I found the site looking for potential sources of coturnix in Uniontown, PA and figured I might as well join and read up on everything I could find while I was here.

    I've never raised quails or chickens before- though I helped a neighbor with coturnix when I was much younger. Right now it seems like a good fit for my tiny little family to have a few and I'm just information gathering. I'd like to be able to decide within the next month on whether it's the right choice because it seems like there is a final swap in my area in November and that might be a good place to get some young ones.

    Any information, links or anything would be quite helpful.

    Nice to meet you all.

    Oraien

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Quails are lovely and their eggs are so delicious. They also don't need a lot of space.
