    ive heard theyre the most difficult quail to raise since they get sick and die so easily. im toying with the idea of possibly trying my hand at it anyway and getting some eggs, hatching them and raising them from chicks to keep as a hobby. would i be getting in way over my head with something like that or is it doable? i have time to put into taking care of them and making sure they're healthy and have clean spaces for them without fear of predation but i dont want to raise the chicks only to have them all die on me in the first few weeks. does anyone here have experience with raising them and if so how hard is it to raise them from chicks into adulthood? thanks a lot [​IMG]

    Send A Pm To Randy At Spectrumranch On Here. He Keeps Mountains And May Be Able To Shed Some Light On Them For You. Do You Have Any Quail Experience At All?

    Yeah, not to mention they are terribly expensive.
