So I visit Craigslist quite often to see just what there is that I couldn't live without and came across someone close to where I live selling Bobwhite quail. So I did some research, quickly "discussed" it with my hubby, and off I went to get the quail. I wanted to start with 5 but the guy gave me 4 female and 2 male. They are 13 weeks old now. I've had them for about a week now and I'm totally in love with them. I even made a sign for their pen.......and although I've read the controversy with having quail with chickens, I'm still incredibly new to everything that I need to know about them and as with chickens, I'm sure the knowledge will come with time. But here is their set up for now....I'm sorry it's not the greatest pic, but it was a rush pic. they can go inside if they want to where they have a two story living space in there. They prefer to sleep outside in the covered run area under some tall weeds. Their run is 4x12 with a 7 ft height. They seem to like it and they don't mind me being in the pen with them at all. I know some say not to have them in the same area with chickens and others swear that they have no problems with it at all....well, mine are in the same coop area and run area (although my chickens free range during the day). So with my fingers crossed, we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping to build some pens inside as well. So I'm excited to set out on this new venture with the bobs....they are absolutely adorable and I love listening to them...they are quite soothing. It reminds me of raising them when I was in single digits out at my grandpas.......ah....good times.
