    all the bad & the ugly now.
    what are the labor requirements, equipment needs, and environmental needs to get started raising quail? say you're trying to convince someone that you KNOW shouldn't get involved with them.

    Coop building never ends...
    Feed them 3 times a day(I do)
    They drink lots of water when you have several hundred...

    I get in the morning and love to do it all over again...[​IMG] oh well, tried. [​IMG]

    They lay too many eggs, then you are forced to hatch them. Then you have to build more pens. Repeat. When they get out, they can fly. Have a net handy. You will be forced to eat some because there are always too many males.

    Yes...they Truely can fly..... found that one out myself. Catching with a net, Make sure the net is a mesh and not the Fishing wire ones. I feed mine once-three times a day (depends on how hungry they are). Water then every day to two (depends on the day) and give them love and attention (somedays).

    Just give in to the dark side............................ THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!

    they stink if you have alot of them, feed adds up, addictive, you'll realize quick that one coop just isn't enough.
