    storing ertile eggs

    You can store fertile eggs for up to 7 days (under 6 days is preferred). If you rig a fridge you can store eggs for 2 weeks and viability stays up though. Without a cool area, expect hatch rate to go down at day 10 of collection.

    How should I wash my dirty quails? I know it sounds strange :(

    When you have white quail, it is inevidible they will get dusty. I would recommend to NOT wash them or get them wet. Just like the movie "Gremlins" you do not want to get them wet, why? you are exposing them to cooler temperatures and their body will not warm up as fast, thus you will chill...

    New Male Button Quail Problem....

    The male likes to pick up things and court the female he wishes to mate with. I supply my cbbq with mealworms so the male can do his role. The female, if she accepts the invitation will cower and accept the gift. My males will pick up anything they find in their cage to suit their hen. This is...

    Why not "Medicated" feed for quail?

    There were studies in the past in which medicated feed causes males to be sterile over long periods of time. We do not medicate here unless it is needed. If medicated feed is only offered in your area I would get it it (if it has the high protein content). If you can get an unmedicated feed I...

    Eggs and Sunlight

    If you want your quail to lay, especially the Coturnix, you are going to have to add lighting to stimulate daylength for them. 14-16 hours is suitable.

    Help! Splayed legs!

    sadly with Coturnix, splayed legs usually do not have good results. I used to use little yogurt cups and put the chick in there so they could eat and drink without moving but never had a case of success.

    new to quail help with a couple questions :)

    1. Coturnix will need a sturdy pen than chicken and make sure to not house them with the chicken. I would wait until they are at least 4 weeks of age before letting them on the grass. Make sure they are in a pen that they cannot fly out or squeeze through. Around 2 weeks they can fly out and...

    Hatching in eggbox

    We hatch in egg trays with the eggs upright and have amazing results. Make sure there is enough ventilation for the eggs to hatch. Egg cartons work too but again, make sure there are holes cut on the bottoms. I find that the styrofoam egg cartons work better than paper since the paper suck in...
