As part of the project on Climate Change, I wonder whether we can look at quail farming as a livelihood in this region. The wild variety of quail, locally called 'teethar' is quite a local delicacy. It is illegal to kill it, but it's commonly available in most of the local dhabas (roadside hotels). 

Quail farming is quite a major business in South India. 

Below are snaps of quail egg, which is quite favoured by our children. It's quite commonly available in grocery stores in Trivandrum. 

Would appreciate feedback on whether anybody has tried 'quail farming' in Bihar/Jharkhand region.
