    Why do people have chickens? [​IMG] Same reasons more or less, and quail take up less space and eat less per bird than chickens, the males are also not as loud, and the meat as a little differnt taste that some people prefer over chicken. I personally like the taste of quail, I think alot of varieties are nice to look at and like to hear alot of their calls.

    I keep quail because I think they're cute, love their vocalizations, love their small size & love that they are something different than chickens.

    Well then how about both of you judgemental food experts paint me a picture of what good eating is supposed to look like? Apparently, you're both above and beyond having to wipe a little gravy from your mouths with those fine cloth napkins!
