    This is a question about how much noise quails can tolerate. I live in an urban setting and was thinking of getting a few quails to keep in the backyard. I back on to a field and park. Would the quails tolerate normal city noises like a door slaming, the dog next door barking, kids playing, lawnmower .... Things like that. And we occasionally hear fireworks in the summer...

    Doesn't seem to bother them unless it's right at their cage or pen. Good Luck with yours.:)

    It might freak them out for a few days. But once they get used to the surroundings they should be fine.

    That's great, thanks,
     
  5. I have lawn mowed directly at my quail all the way up to the wire, with them at ground level, and they just stared at me. You would think a lawnmower coming at your face would be scary. Apparently not.

    I'm relieved, I've been reading and researching a lot on quails lately and some comments about stressed out quails had me worried. Thanks for the info.

    Mine are in backyard pen with a railroad track 50 yds away. When train comes by they sometimes look up then back to what they are doing. I see no problem at all.

    They really aren't too easily phased by noise. We have very loud kids, a cat and a dog that hang out by their coop, and we use the lawnmower right next to them. No biggie.
