    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    My grandpa that lives in Georgia has an acre full of chickens, and that's where I will be getting a lot of my supplies from. This will be my first time owning quails.

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    I don't have any quails at the moment, but I want Courmix quails.

    (4) What are your favorite aspects of raising backyard chickens?
    They are going to make me more responsible, educated on quails and keep me company.

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    I LOVE dogs! I have a dog walking business, which is how I get money to get quails. I also love art and I'm pretty decent at it!

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I have 4 people in my family, 1 dog, and 2 fish. Oscar (my dog), is male 15 y/o with congestive heart failure. :(

    (7) Bonus: How did you find BYC, how long have you known about BYC, and what made you finally join our awesome community? :D

    I found BYC by researching how-to quail eggs! I looked at posts and liked BYC. I made an account and I don't regret it!

    You could start with a small flock then expand, or you could get a big flock now and then make it bigger. Either way, chicken/poultry math will get you:gig

    Hello and welcome! I love dogs too. I just got my first chickens back in May and am having so much fun with them. I am very interested in trying quail next. When you get your quail, be sure to update us and post pictures. :)
