I just got my first 6 Coturnix quail last sat. I knew nothing about them. I've learned a lot on them because of this section! Thanks! in the cage they were sold in I put them in a 8' by 4 ft chicken tractor type deal. It has 5 ft of open access to the ground and 3 ft up off the ground and covered areas. I got all females come to find out. Last tuesday I went and got 6 more. 3 males and 3 females. I put 2 males in with the 6 females I have in the chicken tractor. I put the other male and 3 females in a 8' by 3' chick brooder. I also got 30 hatching eggs while getting the last 6 quail and I just put them in my mini fridge incubator. I got a blue looking one from one of the new hens. I feel I am very much addcited to quail already..... I'm pretty much addicted to all the species of animals I have, but feel I can kind of control the numbers..I'm not sure on the quail though for some reason..... I can't wait to see if any of these eggs hatch!!! Yesterday was day one. There's a couple of golden variety eggs in there for sure and "maybe" a couple of Texas A & M's. I love watching and listening to these little things!
