I would love to get into raising quail for eggs, possibly meat but I'm not too worried about that part yet. I really would love to have some chickens, but it's illegal. I love the birds, I'm not just looking for something to use and abuse, they're be spoiled rotten - and they'd probably get names and never be eaten.. But I know next to nothing about owning them. I know they rarely incubate their own eggs - at least the Coturnix and Bobwhites that I've been researching. Are there any who will incubate their own fairly regularly if given the proper habitat? I don't want to spend a bunch on incubating them myself, because I wouldn't want a many to hatch, just every now and then to keep the breeders going without purchasing new ones - which I can do if it's just more trouble than it's worth. They're readily available in the area. I live in Virginia, and as anyone who lives near here knows that the weather has a mind of it's own year-round. How will that impact keeping them? I know the breeders around here keep them out year-round. What is the BEST type of setup for for them? On ground, raised, mesh/wire floor, solid floor, etc. ? Any advice is welcomed. I didn't want to jump into keeping the little guys without talking to some people who really know what they're doing.
