I live in an area where wild quail are rampant. I live in Central Oregon, and the species common here is the California Quail (at least I think so, haha). My husband and I may be moving onto some property here in CO next year. I would really like to raise chickens for meat and eggs. Reading here about the diseases chickens can spread to quail makes me nervous, though, because the property we want to move onto has quail everywhere! There is no way to keep the quail entirely out of contact with the chickens. I want the chickens to have at least 1/2 acre, and while that would be fenced so wild animals like quail couldn't actually get IN, they could get in close proximity. Would I infect our local quail population with disease? I mean, I know other people keep chickens here in CO, but maybe not with so many quail around. Thoughts?
