Finally bit the bullet and got my first quail! 11 little babies, 2 at about 2 weeks and the others just about a week! In a big RUB with a heatmat, going to look about a heat bulb though as might be better.
The little guys are constantly trying to get under the biggest one so I might split the up so not to bother them too much.
The colour difference is crazy, the guy I got them off was just hatching eggs he bought, the two biggest and one small one is white, the rest are mostly dark brown with black stripes with one a very light brown and black stripes so going to be interesting.
Am I right in thinking you can get white japanese quail?
