Hello, I live in richmond va and I have a smaller sized back yard. I have thought about getting a few Coturnix quail. Ok so here are my issues... 1) I want to get a quail tractor. I know this can be done and I have read about every thread on here about it. The problem is, and it seems to be a common problem, There is extremely mixed views on whether this is a good idea or not. I DO NOT WANT TO PUT THEM IN A SMALL MESH PEN.. I do understand that for proper propagation and safety from predators, however, from what I have read there are many ways to keep the quail safe in a tractor. 2) Instead of a tractor I have thought about getting a larger coop with a run... What are the props and cons to this? I have also thought of taking on old dresser and or old Bureau and making a small coop...thoughts again? 3) when you have a nice coop and or tractor to put them in will they need to come in at night? I would prefer to not to have to move them unless it is an extremely cold night, of which we rarely have here. 4) These quail while they are for eggs and breeding, are more for fun and "pet" status then anything else. I would like them to lay eggs, however I am not looking to make sure they have Optimum production. I just want them to have good lives, entertain me, and feed me from to time. 5) I would love to see any and all setup pics!!! I learn best from seeing. I am very good with my hands and can build what I need if I have pictures showing me ideas.. 6) I am thinking about what kind of runner to build.. oval roof with PVC piping for support, or a close to the ground one that prevents them from jumping... I plan on making sure the ceiling is soft no matter how tall, to prevent scalping. I think I basically just need some form of guidance on what I will need for easy maintenance and a comfortable living space for them. Thank you guys for all the help and I look forward to starting this adventure!
