Quail Coop, Poop, and Worms
I am considering raising quail. As I design the coop, I have an idea I'd like to pass by thevermiculture experts. I would like to build the coop with a mesh bottom as recommended by experienced quail farmers, but then build it over a worm bin. Do you think that would work?
Would I need to add a continuous supply of bedding, or would the worms be happy just in the droppings? Whenever I add bedding, (I use shredded office paper for my worms now) the Quail droppings would continually be on top, instead of under neath the bedding. So, I'm wondering if I could just forgo the bedding.
Any experience would be helpful. I am trying to design a low maintenance system.
