I'm new to quail. Picked up 29 jmf meat maker xl quail. Got 15 females 14 males. 5 weeks old. I have them housed in an extra large rabbit hutch and 3x3 rabbit pens. Inside of a large shed with doors open. I have 1 male to 5 females in each pen. The remainder of males are in the 3x3 pen to finish out. Feeding them 28 percent game bird starter. Same as I feed my baby turkeys. Got my first eggs today. Sooo cool. I have turkeys and chickens in a large seperate run. So no mingling. I've had them about 5 days but so far they are awesome.
