    I need some basic information over Georgia Giant Bob's..some questions are as follows..
    1)Are they hard to raise?
    2)Will they set on their own eggs?
    3)What are the housing situations?
    4)Are they similar to regular bob's?
    5)When will they start laying eggs?
    6)When should they be separated into breeder trio's so the males won't fight?

    If you have raised Bobwhites before, yes they are basically the same in raising and keeping overall.

    And no, they will not go broody and set on their eggs full term. So you will need an incubator if you want chicks.

    They will start laying the spring after their hatch. (they need to be over 6 months of age)

    Pairs only.

    4+ square feet per bird.
