Quails, turkeys, pheasant, and other game birds are being raised throughout the state by wildlife enthusiasts, sportsmen, and individuals desiring the delicacy of such dishes.
With the Co-op Game Bird Feeding Program and proper management, game birds can be produced as economically as poultry. A good sanitation program and adequate housing are the most important elements in the proper care of game birds.

When the eggs are saved for hatching purposes, begin feeding the hens additional calcium such as oyster shells one month before and throughout the laying season.
