    Are they very messy? How often do you clean their coop/cage? Are they outside?

    He and his mother both always look like that, even when they first hatched. They also have trouble walking and stumble allot because they are so heavy, they are 2 or 3 times the weight of the other quails. His father is quite heavy as well.

    Wait, you haven't cleaned their cage in FIVE MONTHS? That is awesome! Isn't there a lot of poop lying around though?

    Awesome! I'm sure you are taking great care of them! Are their eggs good? Do you feel as if keeping them on dirt is better than on wire? Thank you!

    Hmm...are your cages aesthetically appealing? We don't want something ugly on our property...

    Raised them over sand and wire both for years. No difference really in the thrift or health of the bird. Being big on nature id like to think there was but having seen for myself, there isnt.
