We were just given 3 pairs of quail (we were told they are Texas A & M; they are white with a touch of brown on the backs of their heads) and I have so many questions on their care. We've had chickens for many years, so we have some experience. But instead of browsing this amazing website for hours and hours (and getting sidetracked with so much interesting information), I thought I'd put my main questions in one place. Can anybody tell me... Can quail eat the same layer feed as chickens? How many males can be with how many females? How do you tell males and females apart? Are their eggs significantly different than chicken eggs (besides smaller)? What is the incubating time/temp./humidity? Can I make any money selling the eggs/chicks locally? How many square feet does each bird need? How do you dress them when they are so small? What is the best way to eat the eggs? Like any other egg? Can they be in a coop with the chickens? How old are they when they're "full-grown"? Any help anyone could give me would be very much appreciated. I'm excited about trying something new..and the price was just right!
