Actually I wanted to rear chickens .
On a manageable land in a residential area it's possible to rear animals but only conditionally recommended depending on neighborhood.
Looking for alternatives I came across the laying quail. Relatively fast I got two hens and timbered my first stall.
Admittedly the stall was a little bit warped.
From now on, every day I had two eggs. That was enough for a regular weekend breakfast buffet for two.
The little toad , whose legs are visible at the picture, eat those eggs like little chocolate candy ( small and round and with a Happs in the mouth ;-)) and for me these "mini chickens " are really related to much joy. So there was just one logical step to do: the enlargement of the stock.
In the Internet I was hatching eggs and rearing food .I take the selfmade breeder from my brother , modified it and got going .
For my first breeding attempt, I was amazingly successful . 8 healthy chicks from 10 eggs (Thanks to quail -shop.com for the great hatching eggs ) .
The pictures of the breed and the breeder you can see here .
Because10 quailswouldn't have enough room in my warped stall , I decided to build a birdhouse .
On 1.2.2014 14 -awake chicks are hatched.
