    All quail require gamebird food of some sort, whether it be a quail starter, turkey starter or a gamebird flight conditioner or finisher. Something with 24% to 28% protein.

    You can house quail in cages or pens as they are called, in rabbit hutches or aviary style enclosures. It all depends on how to want to keep them. Of course you should offer them as much space as you can afford. Crowding quail causes cannibalism.
