The Valley Quail (also known as the California Quail) is one of the easier quail to breed in captivity. They are by nature very nervous and thus do not do as well in small cages as some of the other quail. It is believed they do much better on the ground if you have a drier climate or if you make dry ground available for them. Many are raised on wire every year so there is no hard rule about them.
The range of this quail is made up of varied topography and climatic conditions. It is found from Baja California, Mexico, up through the western states into Canada. Its eastward range goes as for as Nevada, Utah and Idaho with introductions in Colorado.
