Well since my town has completely outlawed chickens and "farm animals" I have decided it was in my pet chickens best interest to find a new pet home. The change in law was sparked because of someone having roosters. But I have an idea that might just work for this year so I can still enjoy my poultry "kinda". Button quail(maybe even coturnix) in my opinion are more of regular birds than farm animals. "Birds" are specifically allowed in the new law. The pet store up the road to my house used to sell button quails with the finches. So my new plan is to buy an incubator and hatch some button quails. Then build a nice little indoor aviary for a few of them to live in and add a few cheap finches to fill up the cage. No one(not even the zoning officer) will notice the button quails once they see the finches. They won't know the difference! Now all I need to do is save up for a cheap incubator. Any ideas on an incubator brand? I know they sell LG still air incubators at Tractor Supply for $44. I could easily wire up a cheap fan to it to make it forced air. I tried building my own incubator a few times with no success. Once I have the incubator I will start looking for some button quail eggs to test out. I think it is cool that they only take 16-18 days to hatch. Wish me luck!
