I want to get started with coturnix quail. I am guessing there isn't such a thing as SOP for quail like there is for chickens which would be a relief after listening to the chicken folks harp on it all the time. (Me included ) So, is there much difference in ordering from a private breeder or a commercial hatchery when starting out with a a flock? I'd like to start out with chicks, but don't know how feasible that is. Do many people ship chicks? Also, I'm wondering if it is too late in the year to get them, or if you can how hard it will be due to fewer laid eggs in the winter months? Oh, how do they do in winter? Virginia gets pretty cold. Do you make a shelter for them like a little box to get into, or just pile up stuff for them to get in? Well, that is all I can think of to ask right now. Anything else you can think of is great. Thanks a bunch!
