It might be a silly question to ask.......I just thought of it now. I live in Southern NY. If one of my A&M Texas quails accidently get loose ......will they be OK in NY weather and find shelter.... or will they head off for a warmer climate? I'd hate to think they couldn't make do on their own if they managed to escape me outside when they are older. I do live next to protected bird sanctuaries and marsh lands, woods. I just wouldn't want to worry about them supposing the worse happened.
