Quail have doubled size in a week and discovered they like moringa! Thats a win as it might save a little fees.

They are like chickens just with smaller beaks.

Are quail fussy eaters? Chickens are pigs with feathers.

That's a great idea, less cleaning up, mowing and good feed for the little fellows and chickie babes.

Dianne the quail are hard to free range as they are so flighty and fly everywhere. I will put the ones I am growing to eat in a tractor in the grass, mainly so I dont need to clean out poop

Doug are you able to free range your Quails, or do you have too many. They are certainly fattening up.

That's handy to know.  They like duckweed as well.
