For Christmas, 2 of my sons built me a coop and run and gave me 19 coturnix quail. I had no idea of this before hand. Never having raised any birds, I have tons of questions that I was able to find answers to on your quail forum. Thank you! We live in Houston, Texas so the coop is outside on the ground. I'm thinking of raising it up somewhat so that it will be easier to clean. I've been married for 38 years to the same wonderful man and we have 4 grown sons. One is married to a wonderful woman and they are expecting their first child later this month. Whoop! FINALLY going to be a grand mother!
