    Hello! My name is Bre and I have just started raising quails! I live in a city but i grew up in Illinois on a farm with chickens and ducks. Now I live in a city in iowa and cant have chickens currently so interested in having quails! I currently have 3 coturnix quails about a week old. This is the first time ive had quails before but I have researched quite a bit! I am also a mother of 2 boys that love helping with the quails, we also have a boxador(boxer Labrador mix) named Bella. We love to garden so any tips on plants or things to plant to help with quail would be great information to know! Cant wait to start this wonderful adventure into the wonderful and beautiful world of Quails!:)
