    I thought I would give this a try again seeing the quail. It’s 6 minutes before they even mention the quail and then 8 minutes in they haven’t finished a single story. I’ve given up on getting any info about quail – any real info. Who has time for this?

    Gosh, I thought quail were bigger than that. How do people hunt them? Must be nothing left but feathers if you shoot one.

    But you had time to write a negative comment. 🤔

    You have to use a quail gun. That’s a special gun for hunting quail.

    This is a podcast about all us friends sharing our lives more than just the topic of the moment. Sorry if you didn’t like it. There are different style podcasts for everyone. If you have more specific quail questions, please feel free to contact me.

    The one in the picture is 3 days old. Grown quail are still small. Bigger than doves (which I also hunt) but smaller than chickens. You use a small size shot for quail if you’re hunting them. Have a great night!

    Question for Kelly:

    In order to get the letter from the zoning commission allowing wallabies, did Welby have to self-identify as a dog?

    Fair question. I believe as his best friend *IS* a dog, he probably does identify as a dog. Just a really bouncy one.

    I am interesting to hear what happens after the quail hatch.  Raising young birds can be a bit of a challenge.
