I'm thinking of buying a small incubator that will house eight quail eggs. I've been considering hatching and raising quail for the first time. I already have a space for them when they're older, and I have several questions. If you can, please answer them. Getting Started 1) What is a cheap, yet productive quail I should get? I was thinking about Contunix (sp?). 2) How long does it take for quail eggs to hatch? 3) What do you feed them as chicks? Raising / Profit 1) What do you feed them as adults? 2) At what age will the females begin to lay? 3) Do they lay all year around? 4) Can you eat quail eggs? 5) How many males should I have per number of females? 6) Will more then one male fight? 7) What is a quail's lifespan? 8) Around how much do quail sell for? I would prefer people answering just from experience instead of showing me websites please. It's probably be easiest just to copy and paste the questions in your answer and place your answers under each quesiton. If you don't know the answer to all of them, answer the best that you can. Wow, this almost seems like a quiz... Any other tip/information would be greatly appreciated!
