Hi Everyone, I am new to the wide world of quail. I got 4 females and 2 males a couple of weeks ago. I have raised Poultry for years, but I am just looking for a little help to get started with the quail. Pens I want to raise them on wooden floors and shavings rather than wire. I want to raise groups of 1 male and 4 females. So if each bird needs 1 square foot, then I need 4 square feet, which is 2'x2' right? What about keeping extra males? I need to have a few spares. how would you house a single male? in a 1' x1' pen? or would you build the pens all the same size so they could be used as breeding pens? Personality Question I understand that once a group of quail are use to each other, then need birds shouldn't be mixed up or changed groups. Can I change the male?? I want to use one of my males with the first male, and then change the male and use the other male. I do that with my chickens, can I do it with quail? Feeding I feed my show fowl 19% layer krums. Is it ok to feed my quail the same feed? I probably have more questions but this can be a starting place. Thanks.
