Hi everyone! I finally talked my husband into getting some Quail. We want to raise them for their eggs and occasionally to sell some baby chicks. We are also planning on keeping them in our spare bedroom. I have raised ducks indoors, and had a blast. I would be spending a ton of time with the Quail, so I want a friendly breed, I was thinking Cotournix or Button. Here are my questions: Can they be raised in a parrot bird cage? Or in a 50 gallon+ fish tank with a mesh top? Or a Critter Nation cage? I heard wire hurts their feet, would I just lay down hay or aspen/pine bedding at the bottom? How smelly are they? If I clean the cage evry other day..I can deal with the smell of 3 ducks in a small room.. Do they need a bird bath or just a dust bath in their cage? I want to give them some outdoor time, do they get stressed easily? Could I put them on a bird flight leash or would a covered outdoor pen be better? I wanted to have 4 females in one cage-for eggs 1 pair in another cage-for chicks. Is this a good ratio? I heard they are happier in pairs rather than trios or more.. and another pair in a 3rd cage-for chicks I dont need a ton of eggs to eat/sell for eating, but I would like to sell more chicks. Thank you so much, have a great day/night! If there is any other advice you can give me, that would be wonderful!!!
