This book brings you the basics to raise quail for eggs and meat. Provide a natural environment, enclosed safe from predators in a small backyard or great big farm.
If you’re seeking greater self sufficiency that doesn’t require years worth of commitment then quail might be the solution.
Quail have a short life span, 3- 4 years which makes them a smart choice for people on the move or those who don’t have additional time to raise large poultry.
HOA rules normally don’t mention quail which means the suburbs now have an alternative to chickens. Quail are also quieter and will offer you hours of enjoyment.

I have always been interested in adding quail to our homestead and Carole has made it simple. Her step by step “Getting Started Checklist” is priceless. She has not left out a thing if you want to try your hand at raising quail.

This is such a thoroughly comprehensive guide that you’d be remiss not to consult if you’re considering quail. Great information on getting started and keeping your quail healthy. This guide answered questions I didn’t even know I had, it’s a must have resource!
Deborah Jean Dandelion House
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.
