I am new to raising quail, and I feel I have read a ton of information on their care. However, I can't seem to find a consensus about when chicks can be moved to wire.
Their brooder is currently a 38 gal aquarium, with the bottom filled with a few inches of pine shavings. I am growing tired of changing the shavings, but mostly I am tired of taking the shavings out of the water and food containers. They are 11 days old (hatched April 1), and are growing quickly!
I will be keeping them on 1/2" square wire as adults, and I have heard the many opinions about that.
In short, when do you think I will be able to move them?
