They are just going to be pets. I'm going to give the eggs they lay back to the woman I got them from. I'm not into selling the eggs. They sound adorable when they chirp.i love the chirping of birds inside . Between angel,snowflake and these two my house sounds like a forest plus the fish tank and the water from the filter sounds like a stream
I am getting them a longer flight cage. This one is temporary. They need more space . (The cage they were in was a bit smaller then this)
I want to put a sand pit in one end for them to dust bathe and give them more ground room.
The little ones are easy to care for, they get same leftovers as chickens. Food is game bird food as they need at least 20% protein. And they need grit. You can make your own by smashing rocks or buy chick grit.
I could have gotten the bigger dual purpose quail, but I don't process my own meatz.
Most people get the button quail to live in the avarys and extra large bird cages to eat the spilled seeds. They don't perch as they are ground dwellers. A long wide cage is more for them since they live on the ground. And once you pair them you can't add more as they will kill the newcomers. I learned a lot in the past day about them lol
I have no clue lol. I think in the wild they hatch normally, but once in a breeder cage they might not sit on them. Mine just laid a 3rd egg with other 2. I'm going to leave them alone and see if they sit on tgem. I have 2 more coming from the woman who gave me these she is giving me 2 more
