    New, here! I hope somebody is out there who can help me get started.

    I've raised chickens for more than 10 years.

    Is it true that quail are much neater birds?

    I have yet to raise quail, but I am doing the research, and I've decided that I would like to get

    the most docile chicks (or juveniles) that I can, maybe a couple of goldens and a couple of Pharoahs

    or browns or crossbreeds.

    Does anyone have quail for sale (around 12 to 16 oz. as adults) that are daily egg layers?

    I'm picky, but I'm a good grandma/mom with an empty coop and a good sized yard. (empty nester)

    I would raise them for their eggs and as pets. I would like to be able to hand feed.

    Hens only... I can get a roo when I get an incubator.

    I'm assuming that they will lay without a roo around. Will they?


    Experienced advice would be much appreciated!!
