    Frequently Asked Questions

    How many Coturnix quail can be kept together? We stick to a ratio of males to females usually 1 to 5. This helps with fighting between males and over-mating of females.

    How much room do Coturnix quail need? You want to allow at least 1 square foot of space per quail in your quail enclosure. Overcrowding and boredom in your quail coop can lead to pecking or bullying.

    Do Coturnix quail need nesting boxes? These birds aren't usually too big on nests. They seldom make them. Some of these tiny birds use holes in sand as nesting sites, but many of them opt instead to deposit their eggs anywhere they feel like, often in a random and unsystematic manner.
