I live in Southeast, Texas so our weather is unpredictable and either it is very hot or cold. Me and my husband had 10 quail and now we only have 2? The rest have either died or ate by a snake we found in the cage with them. What I am really wanting to know is what is the best breeds for eggs (to eat)? What is the best breeds for meat? What do you feed them? What do they like (dirst baths, high roosting, room, temperature). Anything helps for the most part. We have raised all kinds of livestock just never chickens or quail. Also, what types of cages/pens do you have yours in? Thank you for any help you give us!
