View Full Version : Raising Quail?

Anyone try this? Does quail give tegus the runs? Do they carry salmonella?

Sorry lots of Qs

I have plenty of outdoor space so I was considering raising a small quantity but only if they are relatively easy...

I have raised coturnix quail and I think they worked pretty nicely. but I only fed chicks to my tegus, never full grown. They are easy to keep and incubate. and cheap too! I think I got 100 eggs for like 19 bucks shippe

I raise coturnix and feed it to them without problems. They have a higher body temp than chickens, so you dont have to worry about salmonella from what I've read.

There are many strains of salmonella and quail are not safe from all of them:
