How to keep Japanese (Coturnix) Quail
We write the following quail keeping guidelines for the attention of hobby quail keepers or small scale quail keepers who keep quail to provide eggs and/or meat for their family or just as game birds. The quail originates from a wild environment just as any other domesticated animal and it is related to chicken.>
Keeping quail is fairly easy and good fun but only if you like taking care of animals obviously.
When you’re thinking about getting into keeping birds for the first time sure you would want to start with something that’s easy to keep and where you can learn the basics of it as you go.>
The following guidance and drawings will describe you in detail how to build a simple quail cage that will hold up to 12 Japanese or Jumbo Japanese Quail. This size should be enough to provide healthy quail eggs for a small family.
