I have Texas A&M's. Can i let them live in a colony? and if so..how many male/hen ratio. OR do i need to seperate them into breeding trios? So, i guess what i am asking is....how should i house these guys for breeding? what would you do? This is what i have available for Quail housing.(pics below)..plus..i may want to get another breed or 2... what breed do you suggest for meat? Thanks for any help! This was a freebie i got..its 2x7 and it had a divider to put in the middle..so i am able to have 2 cages if i really need it. right now i have my male A&M's in it. This is a house for 2 of my ducks...(dont mind the plastic over the wire..hubby put that there so the ducks would be warmer this winter...its about 4x6, and has a nest box on the end..(the ducks are going into a bigger coop with my others soon so i can use this for quail..maybe?) This is where i have my female A&M's...it has an insulated nest area..i put the plexiglass on the top to keep their food dry.. And this one is empty now..its about 2x4....how many can live in this?
