    How to Attract Wild Quails

    It is definitely possible to find quails for sale, however, you might also want to try and attract wild quails to your garden as they are attractive and medium-sized ground-dwelling birds that, given the proper vegetation, plants, and accommodations, can be tempted into making a home on your land. Once they are there they will stay forever, as they do not migrate. You will only need about 1/4 acre to build a home for these quails which includes food, shelter, and protection from predators.

    Clear out an area of land that is approximately 1/4 acre large. To attract wild quails, you will need mostly level ground, leaving the quails plenty of room to roam. Place plenty of twigs, dead leaves and other plants on this land to attract the birds. Quails also like  patches of high grass and large bushes to find shelter and protection from other wild predators. They will also be able to nest in this type of vegetation.

    Plant a food plot in this area with vegetables and plants for survival. Quails enjoy clovers, soybeans, sesame, buckwheat, and peas among others. It will take approximately 60 days for these vegetables and plants to provide seeds which the quails will eat for sustenance, so planting it before you wish to attract the quails is ideal.
