Quail are raised and kept in a airy shed on the right-most edge of Samnee’s property on Wednesday. “They are a pain to take care of,” Samnee joked. Samnee raises the quail to provide fresh, nutrient-rich red meat for his falcons and hawks. “Quail provide a good source of red meat, feather and bones ... all of which are essential to a raptor’s diet,” Samnee said.
