I really like the look of quail but I don't know anything about them. If anyone could answer a few basic questions I'd be ever so appreciative! 1. Can they be free ranged? I've not seen anything mentioning it. 2. Could they be housed along with other birds, like 2-5 week old chicks? 3. What kind of temperatures and weather do adult quail prefer? I'm in Scotland. 4. How difficult are they to keep, compared with chickens? I know I could go off and read up about them but I know from experience that if I did that, well, I'd just want some even more and before I know it I'll have bought hatching eggs from eBay and I really don't want to do that just yet! So thank you for any replies.
