So, I acquired the quail as eggs for trade. Some quick reading and I learned some. The thing is from looking at pictures I believe them to be Coturnix. With that I counted 12 hens and 14 roosters right at 6weeks of age. So, I should cut the roos down to about 3? How should I select which roos to keep for a healthy stock? How long do they really live? How old is too old to put on the table? or too young? What is the best type of water that is not automatic? I currently use a one gallon chick waterer. I also use those metal chick feeders. They are off the ground. They do have a place to dust bath. I don't keep any of my chickens with them. I have read that they like to hide, but I don't have that setup. Any other helpful information would be greatly appreciated also.
