I'm thinking I have a fairly protected area, currently with potplants on it, that could be turned into a quail rearing spot with a nice little outdoor run covered from the elements.
My main problem would be "am I capable of killing them?". I think probably yes as they aren't all that appealing as pets, but chooks, I don't know if I could kill a chook.
Morning Florence. Oddly enough we did have "ornamental" Quail in the bottom of the aviary (King I think) when we first moved here. We gave them away for some reason - I think every time I opened the aviary door they tried to escape of something.
I advertised them as pets and two young asian men from the southside came and got them - doubt if they became pets :S
They were in a box in the kitchen waiting to be collected and one got out - two of my dogs immediately grabbed the poor thing and tore it to pieces. It was eaten in seconds.
Joanne, thanks for a great morning, and a great lunch!
Nice to meet everyone else, too! I can finally put names to faces! :-)
What a terrific morning. Thank you so much Joanne, Kevin, Ethan and Andrew.
I have hope now for chooks of my own (really wish I didn't have the poor old cockatiels - will just have to wait until nature takes it's course with them).
Thank you for the betel leaf packets Kevin :) Nothing like actualy seeing something used in cooking to give you inspiration.
The potted plant is a red salvia. Very easy to grow and hardy - I think there's a few plants in that pot. Grows about 1m tall. Just snap off the spent flower stalks and it will keep on producing new ones. Once a year trim off the old woody growth and keep the fresh new growth and each plant will last for years.
Mulberry cutting is planted Florence thank you :D
