So me and the hubby are planning on buying an incubator and the one we are looking at has a package deal with 30 Bobwhite Quail eggs.... We only have chickens right now, but we just can't help ourselves. Our sum total knowledge of quails is as follows: They fly (so they need a secure pen that they can't fly out of) They shouldn't be raised with chickens because of dieses They are normally raise for hunting purposes They are CUTE! They need a high protein diet They normally stay in a brooder for 6 weeks before being put in outside pens They need a enclosed area where they can gather to stay warm in cold winters Now some things I would like to know.... are they good to eat? is there a market for their meat or am I going to end up with a bunch of birds in the freezer I can't get rid of. If I don't eat them are they good layers? Can they be handled or are they naturally flighty animals.
