Are quails allowed in the GTA?

I googled and couldn't find an answer. Unfortunately, I don't qualify for raising chickens in my ward under the GTA pilot project to allow folks to raise chickens in the backyard. So quails would be the next best thing if allowed. I was hoping to use them for pest control.

(I'd have to watch them since there are hawks, coyotes and raccoons in my area.)

Chickens are a farm animal for which there is specific and temporary exclusion ( for chickens ).

Is a quail a chicken ???

You could get 1 and pretend to all that is is a chicken. You know, put a sign around it's neck that says " I am a chicken and not a quail,

However, you could of course call in to ask.

If you live in Richmond the quail will disappear overnight and becomes someone's bbq.

You need to be a bit more specific than the "GTA" for animals
