So, I am thinking of getting some quail to raise for meat (and possibly trying to stock my own secret hunting spot, too... Shhhh) I have a chain link dog run that I don't use, it is 8x12. I was thinking of using this to house the quail. Will it work? My plan will be to line the chain link with chicken wire and dig down 3 feet or so so the quail can't dig out. I will cover the top with some sort of roof (wire, or something similar) I have chickens, and predators have not been a problem where I live except for one unfortunate opossum incident about 5 years ago. I want to grow some natural cover and food in the enclosure as well. I was thinking of planting some crops as well as some natural grasses, shrubs, etc. I live in southern CA, so the weather is not a problem - we have lots of native quail here and they survive just fine. My idea is to raise them in as natural as a habitat as I can get. I was thinking of not providing nest boxes and just let them build their own. Is tis an OK idea? I have 6 chickens, but they are for eggs so the setup is a bit different. any advice would be great!!
