    Can Quail use chicken nipples?

    Yes, they can use the chicken nipples from day one. I use both the jar water with quail lid and nipple the 1st couple days until I see them using the nipple but they seem to take to it right away. I have used the rabbit bottle when they are older.

    Yay! more Iowa quail people. I would like some Bobwhite's someday. I love their looks and call. How do you keep them during breeding season 1:1? I hope your chicken will do a great job hatching and raising them.

    Incubating Quail

    It depends on what kind of quail. There is a lot of good info on BYC, a quick search of this thread will tell you a lot about the quail your planning on hatching or raising.

    Sexing question

    I think I worded the first post wrong. I was wondering if the ones that are lighter colored in the photo, not the tuxedo, could be feathered sexed? I know the one that looks like a tux can't be but the other 3 look light to be mostly of the Italian color? I don't know the genetics of the...
