I have a desire to raise quail for ONE reason only: to train my dogs using a Johnny House and recall them. Around fall I'll likely shoot them and eat them, for they are great table fare (maybe that's two reasons). I have ZERO experience here with raising birds. I stopped at my Tractor Supply, and the two folks who helped me only discouraged me, saying raising 25 quail was difficult, they won't recall, and I should just go to a shooting preserve (at $20 per bird, no thanks). So I can't find anyone to sell me flight ready birds, but CAN get day old chicks. I'm just not sure how to get from the day old to the Johnny House stage successfully! I can buy a box thing or pen, a light, feed, water/pans..etc but the TSC people told me that getting them to the feathered stage before placing them in the Johnny House would be impossible. They were idiots, I assume, since someone since the dawn of man has likely done this before. Google searches are giving me mixed information. I'm brand new here, any help at all is so greatly appreciated.

its not hard raising quail. Im not too familiar with Johnny Houses. I raised quail for dog trials, and personal use.
