    Garden of the Geeks - Ver 2.0 Update Coming Soon! With added Coturnix quail
    Hello Shaggy2061 with Garden of the geeks here with a few questions

    Living in the Valley of the sun (Phoenix, AZ area) Wondering what peoples experience out there is with coturnix quail(local and not so local), Questions like
    01 . What kind of Shade are you providing them
    02. Feed and where to get it
    03. Where to get the Pullets to start out with (raising for eggs only)
    04. HELP!!!!!!!!!

    OK with that out of the way. Moving on to about Me and or us.. Family of % here living in a tiny arse mobile home lot. We almost own mobile (darn mortgage) not the Land. Funny thing we own 3.75 acres out in eloy just can not move home till we pay off mortgage(darn mortgage)! So can only really do coturnix quail Right now (also have to kind of keep them sorta quiet and hidden). SHH!!!!! Like i siad we have lees than a 20th of an acre we are located on Here is what we started with Yeah it is not looking like that today.
    And I can finally start updating my YouTube channel again as the problems I had(Neighbors) are gone.

    Anyways Come tax time we are going to upgrade to Coturnix quail Need and want to bring down food budget so we can move out to Out Land we have paid off anff and start really doing it up..

    So anyways as you can see I ramble like mad crazy so any questions I will gladly answer!

    Thank you

    Try Craig’s List for the quail. If you don’t see them offered, you can also post a wanted ad. Ask at the feed/farm stores, farmers’ markets, etc. I believe you can also get them from some of the hatcheries, or your local farm store may be able to order them in for you. In addition to your farm store, info regarding how to care for, house, feed, propagate them can be had on YouTube.

    Thank you
    Have been surfing YouTube a lot. But have not been able to find much info for my area as it does get to be 120 in my yard several time during the summer,And yet get below freezing in the winter sometimes.
    Was hoping some fellow Phoenix residents would chime in with what works for them!?

    Thank you me as well tired of paying lot rent, TO me that is basically like flushing money down the pooper!
