Can you tell I'm hungry? LOL! I'd like to grow some quail in the spring and have some questions. - If I get chicks, can I let them go broody and hatch their own? WILL they go broody, or do I need to buy an incubator? - What is the most cost effective way to set up an outdoor cage/pen for them? They seem to need a lot of square footage, given that you have to enclose it, but everything I'm seeing sounds like people use less than the recommended amount. I was thinking maybe one of those hoop style coops near my garden for them, then using a nice thick layer of wood shavings along the bottom. - How many M:F do I need? How closely do I need to track the population, or can I just let them breed at will and occasionally go in, weed out some males to process and let them continue doing what birds do when left to their own devices? - Do I want coturnix jumbos, A&M 'white' quail, or something else? If I have more than one kind, will they make mutts? Can I put button quail in the same cage for fun? - WHat else do I need to know, having raised them already, that I won't necessarily see online? - How pleasant would sitting in a chair in that coop be, just to hang out? WIll they be dive bombing me or just being mellow or what? - How friendly/aggressive are quail? - Can they share a coop with other birds? Say... scovies or guineas? Edit, as I thought of something else - How early in the season can I put them outside? How cold hardy are they?
