    Hello! I am new to this and was looking for some help. I just got a straight run of 60 quail chicks because my family and I wanted some quail for eggs. The only problem is what should I do with the male quail?? We planned on keeping the females inside the coop but we are not sure what to do with the males! Any suggestions??

    Well, if you eventually want quail babies, you keep 1 male per 5 females. Other than that, I think the males are mostly used for meat?
