Meet the Quail!
It's about time we talk about our quail! We raise Coturnix Quail in Hectorbuilt cages. They serve as an excellent food source for the lizards (and us, sometimes). They can lay approximately 1 egg per day, per female. The eggs are small, with a ratio of about 4 or 5 : 1 when compared to the size of a chicken egg.
The quails themselves are fast growing and mature at about 8 weeks. They are fed high protein crumble and kept in pens that house about 6 quail (2:4 male to female ratio for high fertility).
The lizards enjoy the chicks, eggs, and full grown quail, depending on the lizard and the lizard's size.
Another nice feature of the quail is the male's coo which is actually very soothing to some.
