I have 12 button quail - 6 adults and 6 younger ones -- I am wanting to build them a hoop coop outside so they can live in a natural setting instead of inside in a tote. i tihnk they will be very happy outside with fresh air and dirt to bathe in and bugs ewwww. Here is my plan I want to plant a few small plants inside so they can hide in them - I also want to plant some fast growing ground cover - and also plant a vineing flower on the outside and let it grow up and over the chicken wire -- my questions is what plants are button safe ?? also will they lay thier eggs in a coop or lay them where ever they find a spot they like ? and what about the winter months are they hardy birds ? should I supply a heat source for them ?? I think right now I have 2 males in my adults and not sure what they younger ones are yet -- will males fight ??
