I've ordered 3 dozen bobwhites from a quail ranch an hour's drive off. We've just retired and moved to the country (northern Alabamie) 2 years back. There was 2 bobwhites to be heard year 1 and then just a lonely bobwhite year 2. Haven't heard a quail these last 4-5 months. Started cage trapping and to my astonishment, been getting coon and possum in high numbers, 17 since Jan 1 on our 5 acres. Glad I did so, seems a heavy population would stress all ground nesters. OK folks, I know next to nothing about poultry, they taste good and are mostly pleasant in the wild. Guy I'm getting the young quail from says release is OK, but don't expect many to survive. I'm hesitant as to building a coop but would like to enhance the little fellas survival chances. What, in practical terms, should I do?
