    Hi, I'm planning on raising quails inside my house and I need some information on how to start. Things I really need help on is what kind of light they need and how much. And temperatures. I can't have them outside cause winters on the way. Hope I can get some help thanks!

    [​IMG] So glad you joined us.

    No experience with quail, but if they make as much dust as chickens, think carefully about where in your house you will place them. Agree post the issue on Quail forum, some likely can give you the specific advice you seek.
