So I was raising Quail and BCM for a while. I have been fairly successful as far as breeding, and hatching but I always get attacked. I stopped raising them because I was always loosing them to coons, and a fox? I dug into the ground and they always find away in. the only thing I have not done was completely enclose the flock I had. I didn't want to do that because here in alabama it can get hot and I want them to be cool and as natural as possible. How do you keep yours safe? Also I have had problems with snakes getting in with my quail. Is there anything that keeps snakes at bay?
