I am thinking of trying quail this year and have a few questions. 1- Can I keep them in cages in the chicken coop, or would they need their own separate place? can chickens pass anything bad to them? 2- I have read somewhere that the texas a&m variety has some white meat. Is this true? (I prefer white meat) if so, they lay pretty good too? 3- is 1/2 to 1sg ft per bird sufficient space? 4- how many should I start with? I would like to keep some around for eggs, and the meat will be an added bonus. 5- how noisy are they? I've heard not as loud as hens, does this include the males too? 6- I am in GA, do I need a license? (I do not want bobwhite quail) If so- what type of license and do I have to renew yearly? Thank you!!!
