    Yes it is very legal. As long as your township allows poultry, quail are perfectly legal. If you keep Coturnix or Button quail, you do not need a permit. Bobwhites, Gambels, California's, Blue Scale, etc...you will need a permit from your game and fish. :)

    Each state and town is different. So you need to contact your town hall or better yet, your state game and fish. The permit will not break your wallet, but the forms might kill you. LOL
