    Funny I found this website/forum through Texas Bowhunters.com I guy on there was asking about raising chickens and they recommended BYC so I checked it out. Great site. Was going to try and raise a few chickens, however with the city requirements I don't have enough space away from my house and property lines etc. Then I started researching on the quail thread and that is what I am going to do raise some quail. No city restrictions. Got a brooder house built and I built a ice chest incubator which I am testing as I type. Seems to be holding at 99 degrees.

    I have so many hobbies now I guess one more won't hurt. LOL

    Hello there and welcome to BYC!

    Yes, quail are great to keep in areas you can't keep chickens. I keep both and they are equally as fun to keep.

    Stop by our quail section to talk with other quail keepers if you like...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/48/quail

    Good luck with your quail adventures and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome![​IMG] I'm glad you joined our community.

    I hope your quail raising goes well! I've never kept quail myself, but have always thought that they seem like nice little birds.[​IMG] If you want to chat with other quail raisers, I suggest taking a look at the quail forums: Quail

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I hatched and raised some quail and they were lovely little birds to keep. Unfortunatly the dog did not like them so I had to rehome them. Drop by the quail section of the learning centre for some super articles on quail incubation, brooding and keeping. Here is the link I'm sure you will find it very helpful https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/other-backyard-poultry-ducks-quail-turkeys-geese-etc

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your incubation, hope you have a great hatch.
    Enjoy BYC :frow
