Hello! My grandfather has been raising quail and pheasants for a long time now, and he's been hatching HUNDREDS of chicks in the past few months. He showed me the multiple brooders full of various chicks. Knowing his intentions to hunt them when they're grown, I can't help but feel the need to "pardon" a few of them, and I have just the room on my mini-farm to harbor them. We have a small structure inside of our chicken coop suitable for a brooder yet spacious enough for older fledglings that they can develop in. We also have a large connecting run shared with ducks, rabbits (at times), and chickens. Currently, the chicken coop is occupied by ten pullets of various ages and they seem accepting of new elements (adult ducks, new young chicks, and rabbits at times). I think integrating them when I get them will be a breeze. My grandfather has Bobwhite quail, Georgia Giant quail, and Ringneck pheasant chicks available. The birds would not be for meat or eggs, but would be for pets mostly. I understand these species are more wild than tame, but I'm hoping to make the best of the offer and handpick the nicest chicks! Of the species listed, what would be the best for interacting with chickens and ducks and being reasonably comfortable with my presence? Which would imprint at hatch, if I were there for it? They'd also need to be relatively quiet, since we have neighbors. Also, please tell me if it is not a good idea at all. Thanks for tuning in!
