    I am looking forward to buying African Harlequin Quail, but would like to know a little more about this beautiful quail. I was searching on google for more information but noticed they did not have a lot of information, so I that I would ask you guys. Are these quail anything like the regular coturnix quail: Do thay poop a lot?[​IMG] What do they eat? Could they be keep in an 8x8 aviary? If any of you have any info I need to know or any pics of these quail, I would be glad to hear from you.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    They Are Quite Similar To Regular Coturnix But Smaller.... About 1/2 Way In Between Button And Coturnix In Size.

    They Are Quail--- Of Course They Poop Alot [​IMG]

    Gamebird Feed Or Gamebird Starter

    Aviary Will Be Fine

    Thanks again JJMR794, I tried that byc search that I never knew I had. It worked great, got a lot of information and know new breeders that have Harlequin Quail.​
