I've been bitten by the bug now and as my fine, feathery friends are growing up nicely, I'm already making plans for the Spring. These plans are looking like they're going to include quail. So, all you quail-lovers, tell me a few things... What are your favorite breeds and why? Hatching eggs vs chicks? What's your preference? Do you eat them? (I understand that you can, I'm asking more out of a curiosity as to how many of you that raise quail do actually eat the birds themselves) What are their space requirements to keep them comfortable and happy? How often do they lay? I've noticed in many recipes (I'm sure because they're much smaller than a chicken egg) that it tends to call for a dozen or more eggs per recipe so I wonder what the average yield is per day/week in your experiences. I'm sure I have other questions but these are some main ones. I can do all the research on each breed but nothing beats personal experience, in my opinion!
