i heard that quail are hard to raise . any body have any experience with them?
I think they vary by type. I love my corturnix, very easy.
I have courtinex-they are a breeze. I have Bobwhites they are a pain in the neck--CarnaVORS!!! I have Buttons--great to raise! Mountains hard to get to lay--So far!
i had buttons. they are fairly easy to raise
I have butler bobwhite for almost 5 years and pure white bobwhite almost 1 year, its all about space for these guys. they like there space especially during breeding times. Are bobwhites start laying in spring and will lay into late summer, early fall.
I think mtn quail only lay a very small number of eggs not many from what i read and dont produce like the bobwhite, the corturnix lay very well to, from what i know daily from spring to fall.
I have Japanese Quail which are 3 weeks old, I hatched them myself. They are the tamest cutest little things. The follow you around. They're very easy to look after, I change their water twice a day, and they just eat chick feed and when they're older, pellets.
