Hi, I've been looking to raise quail for a while, but I don't have a ton of space, and I only wanted 4-6 hens. Since eggs tend to come in 50's I kinda gave up for a while. AND THEN! Yesterday an ad was posted on craigslist by a fella looking to downsize his flock. I was so excited I ran out, drove the hour and a half to San Jose and picked up six Cortunix hens. Now I' in kind of a pickle. I need to go up North this weekend for a job, and I'll be gone two and a half days. The guy I bought the quail from said he leaves them for days at a time with no troubles. Last night I put a pound of food in a dispenser, this morning at 10am it was all already gone, most of it fallen through the cage wire. ... :-/ Is there a set up for leaving your quail for a weekend? Or do I need to find a quail sitter? Next, I have a yard that's 10 feet wide 20 feet long with 6 foot fencing. If I clip the girls wings can I let them free range back there during the day? If I wanted to confined them to a 10 by 10 area how high should I build the fence? I am sure I will have a ton more questions, but these are my first. Many Thanks!!
