    Hey everyone i just did a bit of research on Quail and think it would be interesting to breed and raise them for eggs and meat. But i think introducing them to the wild would be cool too. (Could you do that?) Some of my hobbies are fishing,Fly fishing and tying,hiking,camping, Sling Shots,YouTube (ScoutingInTheWoods ) ,and scouts. I have two dogs. I do not have any chickens or birds right now but i did have 12 about 4 years ago. But when i moved be had to get rid of them. So one question i have is are male quail loud and could you have most of them in a neighborhood.

    Welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined our community. Reintroducing pen raised quail to the wild can be problematic with a low success rate due to predation.
