So I recently received my wildlife possession permit that is going to allow me to raise coturnix quail. I had planned on keeping about 20 birds in an outdoor pen with about 23 square feet (plus the henhouse), but it turns our that the game and fish department wants me to have 4 square feet per bird. That means I'm reduced from being able to have 20 birds I can only keep 5. That's about how many breeders/egg layers I was planning on keeping, but that leaves no room for growing out meat birds. I don't really want to have a huge permanent 40 square foot structure for 10 itty bitty little birds. Do you have any ideas on how to raise meat quail without converting my whole back yard into an aviary?
