Hello, I am brand new to the forum and don't yet have any quail. (Though I have had buttons as pets in the past.) Originally, I was thinking of getting some chickens, but am now leaning toward quail instead -- for eggs and possibly meat. My concern was how much heat they can tolerate. We live in the Sonoran Desert, so our summers are frequently in triple digits and can go for days over 110F. The Gambels Quail are native here and do fine, but what about the coturnix? Or is there a species more heat tolerant? I was hoping to house them in an aviary, possibly with some doves or diamond doves. (The heat may be a concern for them as well) Obviously they will need shade and water. Is that enough? Are misters needed? I spoke with one person who set up misters for her chickens out here, but she said they weren't smart enough to go to the misters. I wondered if I would have the same problem with quail. Any thoughts or ideas on types of quail, ways to deal with heat, or any other suggestions?
