Well I'm estimating that my quail are now 6-7 weeks old based upon the information the seller told me (when I bought them they were suppose to be around 3-4 weeks old and I've now had them for three weeks). I'm currently getting 13 hours of natural light and from various sources I'm seeing that they need 14-16 hours to lay. So I've got a light bulb above the cages. Wasn't sure how much light they'd need so I currently have a 15W bulb and I'm running it for a couple of additional hours.
Is 15W sufficient? I have it just a few inches above the top of the cages (two cages). Or do you think it needs to be brighter?
Appreciate your advice
