The feathered alternative to pet rabbits.!!
Most quail varieties are more than happy to live in a rabbit hutch with a small run. Quail can be tamed and will eat out of you hand. Given the right environment they will also lay you over 300 eggs per year each, although a quail egg is a quarter of a standard hens egg they taste great hard boiled in a salad or used in a fresh omelette..
The pets you can eat between meals..!!! (joke)
