My sister keeps reminding me that I haven’t really said much about our quail since we’ve added them to the homestead. And if we’re being honest, it’s because I still haven’t made up my mind about them.
Everything on this homestead, in my opinion, should be a sufficient source of something or another. And ultimately, I have to take time to outweigh pros and cons of animals and situations on our homestead. I am not going to post a post or make a video telling you all of these amazing things about something unless I have experienced it first hand myself. I’ll tell you what others have said, but not my opinion or that it is “truth” until I’ve actually experienced it myself.
For example, every post I read online said quail start laying eggs around 6 weeks. Mine didn’t start until week 15 because apparently they weren’t getting enough light. However, my chickens have been laying since February with absolutely no supplemental lighting.

Very interesting read Amy I will be looking for more information so will be back.
Thank-you for sharing! I had thought about keeping them indoors however have changed my mind and decided to find a place in the barn for them based on your information about the smell.
It’s so nice to see an honest review for a change! This has been really helpful, thank you.
