The incubator went into lockdown today.
We should be lousy with baby quail very soon. I think we have decided that it really isn't worth it to raise quail for meat since it takes at least 2-3 birds to make a decent meal for one person. There does seem to be some interest in the eggs though, so we are going to try and get a few more females from this batch. Right now their enclosure is so big for the few that we have that it is more like a habitat. We have plenty of space for more girls. The males will probably make an appearance on Big Onion's food blog though.
Do your domesticated quail sleep in a circle like the wild ones do?ReplyDelete
I think they tend to sleep along the outside wall of the enclosure, mostly in the corners. I didn't know they did that in the wild.ReplyDelete
