If you are going to raise quail you will have to plan your project. You will need to know what breed of quail you want to raise. I would strongly recommend either the Coturnix or Bobwhite quail. This will help in determining the type of coops needed and the amount of space. You will also have to det…ermine if you are going to raise your quail on the ground or in wire floored coops. Raising quail in ground pens can present more disease problems then raising on wire. Especially if you live in a damp type environment. If you are starting out as a beginner to raising quail, you will have to have everything you need in place before you make a purchase of eggs or quail chicks. Purchasing quail eggs will save you money as opposed to purchasing chicks. But if you are a first timer, you may have a bad hatch rate due to lack of knowledge. Although if you plan on pursuing this venture you will at some point have to use an incubator anyway. Quail are not known to hatch their own eggs to well in captivity. Here are the things you need to have in place before you purchase your quail. You will need an incubator, I suggest a fan forced air, self turning type incubator. You will need a brooder or brooding area. The area required is determined by the amount of quail chicks you will have. You will also need your grow out and pairing pens constructed. I would also suggest you check your incubator and brooder to make sure they are functioning properly before you order your quail. Remember one thing, raising quail is totally different than any animal you have ever raised. The more knowledge you can get before you start, the better off you will be. (MORE)

The platypus does not have a beak. It has a bill. The platypus's bill is covered with thousands of tiny electroreceptor cells, which enable it to detect the electrical impulses of tiny water-dwelling creatures. Once detected, the platypus then uses its bill to shovel the mud and get to the creatur…es, which form its main food source. (MORE)
They don't. The platypus has a leathery snout, sometimes called a bill. It is nothing like a duck's bill or a bird's beak. The platypus uses its bill to find food. It closes its eyes when underwater, and uses its bill to detect movements. Equipped with electroreceptors, the sensitive bill can sens…e electrical impulses, even the tiniest of movements made by underwater crustaceans. The bill/snout is also used to shovel up the soil on the bottom of the river or creek in order to find the food. Once found, the platypus uses grinding plates in its bill, rather than teeth, to crush the food before eating it. (MORE)

Yes, well really it's their excrement that smells not them. Putthem in a cage with a wire bottom floor, and use a litter of woodshavings, straw, or even dirt - as long as it stays dry it won'tsmell so bad. Using diatomic earth helps a lot too.
