We are complete newbies to the idea of keeping quail (we don't even have any yet -- still planning). I was hoping we could keep the quail in an outdoor aviary with a dirt floor. We live in the desert in AZ, so our ground is very hard, dry dirt. Along with the quail, we may keep doves and fnches too. Is it the eggs being laid on the ground, or the droppings, or what, that could cause a problem with worms? Would I have to worm my quail? Why is not an issue with quail being kept on wire? Or is it? I'm just not understanding the worming thing and what, if any, effect it may have on the eggs or the meat.
