I have 11 Coturnix quail, and 12 bobwhites as of right now... But I would like to end up with more birds rolling in and more birds rolling out into the freezer as soon as I can get set up right... My whole quail expedition here is to have a end result of meat meat meat! I'm stilling wondering about the GQF 15 section Quail Breeding Pen Each section is 10"x24" floor space - roughly 2 Sq ft each. (GQF manufacturers details info says 4 birds can be kept in each section - I take that with a grain of salt...) from what I have learned I have 5 coturnix in a 4sqft cage - 1 male and 4 females. They all get along fine, it is a matter of matching up birds together that get along!!! Thats one thing I seemed to find out... So with that said these GQF cages are basically half that size of what I have, so Im thinking 1 male to 2 females per section in the GQF cages may work fine?... I just see over breeding problems possibly... I'd like them to have all their feathers and look nice, but its not a huge deal to me, as long as they dont kill each other I'm fine. Can I rotate out the coturnix males to breed once a week to another cage and still get fertile hatching eggs most of the time? As far as the bobwhites go though from what I understand they pair of 1:1 for life... So I would have to do a 1:1 ratio per cage. Then I have heard the bobwhites will fight once they are in breeding mode so that tells me I cant put 4 birds in one cage together.... Am I correct here??
