Carole begins by telling her story of how she first fell for quail as a young girl and how after moving to the country years later she set out to bring quail to her homestead, only to find little information about bird care and proper housing.  She learned the hard way but has made it her mission to make it easy for others by sharing all the important things to know about raising quail.
