    Hi everyone,

    I have an interest in raising quail but do not know where to start.
    Some questions that I have:
    I live in the mountains of Colorado so I don't know the breed that will do best in this climate?
    What type of pen is best (space isn't an issue)?
    The last question I have is what food is good to start off with and then progress into?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Probably most quail can handle cold climates exept buttons with some good shelter,its good to raise em on wire so they wont get sick or eat there own feces.Get gamebird feed with high protien 17-24% or somthing like that?I hope a person with more expierience ansewers these.
