    Hi Everyone. I would like to share my experience with quails so far. Well it al started where i bought 5quails for my self for pets. They are awesome to have and i really enjoy them. Thats til i tasted quail meat and eggs. Then i said that i won't be able to eat my pets so i decided to build my own incubator to get more chicks and meat. So i build my own incubator then i had 4 chicks that hatched with the test of the incubator then i went and build my own brooder box. Now i have 35 fertile eggs in the incubator and they sould hatch within the next 3days. Then i realised that that is allot of chicks an will need space for them in 4 weeks time. So I'm now busy building a quail tunnel that is 11m long and 1.5m wide. That wil be one of two tunnels that I'm building because i already have another 50 eggs waiting to be incubated. I reall am proud with what i did so far and can't wait to sell quails to people for pets, meat or the eggs.. so here is some of the pics of al my DIY projects
