    The Kids are in 4H and every year in the spring they will give you Pheasants and Partridge and quail to raise then release, I was thinking of trying this out this year any tips, feed and housing general care questions, can I keep them all together?
    How long Till they mature?
    ANy Info would be great. Thanks

    You would want them to be as wild as possible, so a nice size aviary with lots of cover is good. NO blinders to affect their visions development. Big waterers and feeders so you don't have to mess with them much, and maybe even only feed and water at night.
