I would like to go on record blaming JOE for this new development. I work with JOE, a nice guy who needed to get rid of two Courtnix Quail. I took them off his hand last night. They traveled in a box in the trunk of my car. I talked to Annmarie this morning and told her about the quail and how I could build a small box 2 feet x 2 feet and 8 inches high to house 25 quail. She told me that the quail cannot live in a box. So after further study of the chicken coop I am going to build a 2 foot x 4 foot x10 inch cage. I will cut a hole through the outside wall into a new 360 degree covered outside area just for the quail. I can add a brooder space above that cage and some storage space above that. The nice thing is all this is built on the walls on the inside of the coop. I was not using that space at all so I get to use it for something now. Pretty cool.
I am thinking about learning to pickle eggs and using the quail eggs for that. So once I get it perfected then everyone will be getting pickled eggs as gifts!!
I will go cut my chicken sized door into the outside fence tomorrow. This will keep the sheep out of the chicken yard. The sheep keep knocking the waterers over.
I sanded and mudded the sheet rock in our library today. I really think I will be done by Thanksgiving. That is my story and I am sticking to it. I will finish getting the wall paper off tomorrow and repair the closet ceiling. I want to have the room painted and wired for our company.
I will post pictures of my new quail project as I start working on it!!! I love new projects.
