Hi everyone I am new to this website. I came across it while researching raising & breeding quail. I have always loved having all kinds of animals just haven't had the space/property to house them. Now that I do I want to get into the caring and breeding of some of them. I don't have any wishes or plans to be a commercial operation by any means. I just want to have them to enjoy and just sell the offspring. I'm looking into getting these species Snowflake Bobwhite, Mexican Speckled Bobwhite, California Valley, Blue Scale, Gamble, Mearns and when I get a little more exp. Mountain. I want to start with maybe a male & 2 hen of each and keep them in there own pen. I might keep to of each later at the most. My question to you guys that know a lot more than me is "Everything lol". No really I would gladly appreciate all the info on caring breeding & hatching them. I would also like to know the egg production that having these pairs together will produce "Like I stated before I don't want to be commercial so don't want to be overrun by eggs". I kinda have a idea from searching around on what cage I plan on building, but don't know if they will work for all different quail I plan to keep. I plan on building a 18"H x 3FtW x 3FtL wood floor and completely covered roof. I plan on cleaning the pens once a week. Like I stated before any and all info is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to hear & interacting with you guys Thank you.
