Hi all, please be patient with me, I'm getting some quail eggs with a batch of chicken eggs to incubate, and I don't want to bug the person sending them so I'll try to ask my questions in 1 go. I would like to know the big NO NO's before I make a mistake. and some things I'm confused about. 1) chickens and quails don't mix.. a) because of aggression of chickens. b) because chickens can pass on illness to quails. ..correct? c) if this isn't all correct could a broody bantam chicken hen hatch quail eggs and would she raise them? 2) a) can I use an old chicken coop for my quail if I clean and disinfect it, it has 1/4" wire in bottom? b) same with run? If I can use these for my quail they were designed for 2 standard chickens in mind (haha I got the fever) the coop is 9 sq ft, the run is 16 sq ft, if you were me would you keep the breeders in the coop and the ones you planned on culling in the run? 3) I notice everyone has the quail on wire I understand its because of amonia thats why I built my 1st chicken coop with wire. the question here is why if the birds are field birds they aren't kept in a run on the grass? 4) a) I live in florida I'm wondering how cold they could stand before they need to be covered? b) do you cover them every night? 5) if a predator came lurking up to their pens would they die of fright? I ask this because when I was a child I had finches literally scared to death by a cat. 6) do quail go broody often or do you need to incubate all eggs you want to hatch? 7) do you worm quail? or is that 1 of the reasons you keep them on wire? thank you all for any advise, I'm sure I'll think of more questions, but I'm so excited now.
