You have never seen a more quirky homestead critter than a quail. They are so funny to watch and will begin amusing you from the day you hatch. Despite their small stature, quail produce delicious eggs at a marvelous rate. Quail are perfect for a small or city homestead as you can house quite a few in very little space. Because the males are generally quiet (just letting out a sweet cooing sound) you can have them on non-traditional homesteads.
