Quail are fascinating creatures which don’t need as much space as chickens to be happy. Ideal for the smaller garden or back yard. You can even have a go at breeding quail as the male sounds like a wild bird which is unlikely to upset the neighbours opposed to the sound of a cockerel at 5am.
These birds can lay up to 2 eggs a day as the production cycle takes less time than a hen.
