They have giant coturnix too. If your plan is to eat them bigger is better, I think the giants lay the same number of eggs just a little bigger.......great now I am going to have to find some and see..

Birdguy and Jackelope - that did help clear it up for me. I've always had chickens but I've considered getting quail for many years. It sounds like it would be fun to raise them - along with the added benefit of eggs and meat.
Thank you  :tup:

To the guys that have them, any pics of your coop set ups? Can you do a quail tractor?
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Quail for Sale????

My wife has hers in a rabbit hutch. Hers is 2 levels but is currently only using one of them.  They’re really simple to keep on a small scale. It can be more complex but doesn’t seem like it needs to be. They seem to like smaller,  more confined spaces as they feel safer. Also they can fly so keep the roof low so they don’t hurt/kill themselves. They’re very spooky and also very dumb.

Her 2 birds are in the top and she stores stuff in the bottom. We’re working on getting her a few more birds so might use the bottom or might build something else.

My buddy built this one for his wife. They’re pretty hard core with the poultry. If I build her one, it’ll mimic this one.


" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
