    Hello all;

    About 3 weeks ago I adopted a rescued Japanese quail, and I recently got her a little friend.
    So I have two females in total. They are primarily pets. Their names are Pea and Nugget.

    I thought I'd join the group as most of the questions I ask on Google are met with answers from this forum.
    I'm excited to talk to the people with experience who could guide me in my quail ownership!

    I also like chickens, but I do not have room for them. My friend who runs the barn where I ride may look into getting some hens,
    so in the future I may have some chicken questions as well!

    Cheers to you all,

    Pea-in-a-Pod

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Congratulations on your new quail :celebrate I've not kept Japanese quail but I did hatch and raise some cortunix and they were lovely little birds to keep, I really enjoyed them. I see you have found the quail section of the forum, it's a great place for all your quail questions. There is also a lovely section on them in the learning centre. Lots of super articles about keeping them. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/other-backyard-poultry-ducks-quail-turkeys-geese-etc

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
