    Hi everyone,
    I'm a farm girl from Montana who uprooted herself and moved to utah, ive just started poultry for myself or the first time. I am hand raising six coturnix quail babies and am finding them sweet and a handful. I grew up raising chickens and these guys are alot different. If you have any suggestions for treats, feed, and ideas about housing i'd appreciate the help.

    Congrats on the quail! I've never raised them but they look like cute, fun little birds. Here's a link to the quail forum...I'm sure someone there can give you some answers:

    There are also some interesting articles about quail in the Learning Center that might be of help to you.

    Thanks for joining us and good luck with your quail!
