Hi all I have been keeping chickens for eggs and meat (and chicks of course) for about 4 years now. We have recently decided to get into quail. While shopping for quali eggs a friend of mine offered to give me 9 adult quail. All I know is that their are 9 of them, they are laying and they are old. I figured I could get them and then hatch my own eggs. So here are my questions: 1) we plan to use a old camper shell (like that goes on the bed of a truck for shelter). We are going to raise it up on lanscape timbers and put fence around it. then make shelves in the top for them to nest in. would a ramp or ladder be easier for them to access the top part? 2) I know they eat game bird feed. could I feed then half game bird feed and half flock raiser? can they have scratch and BOSS like chickens? 3) To keep a running colony for meat how many males/females would you keep at all times? I figued I would mark this odler birds and keep them since they are probably kind of tough now. 4)Can you use a regular egg turner for quail eggs?
