    Do I have a drafty brooder? Help!

    Yo, this is my first time hatching quail eggs! Can someone tell me if the chicks placement says I have a drafty brooder? Or is it too hot? The chicks are all on the right, against the side of the box. How do I fix this? Is my lamp placement incorrect?

    Chick gasping in egg?

    Hello, I’m hatching 13 quail eggs and I noticed that one of the chicks that externally popped today is now gasping within the egg. I can see it through the hole it’s broken but I don’t think it’s normal. Does this mean it’s dying or is it a humidity problem? It’s day 17 for the quails and I have...

    I got a one legged quail today... about 5-6 weeks maybe? He’s not able to stand on one foot. The other foot is almost twisted completely backwards, too. He just scoots/crawls, and it’s incredibly difficult for him to get around. I’m not sure if this is a birth deformity or an injury. This makes...

    How many quail can I fit into my rabbit hutch?

    Hi there! I’m new to raising quail. Today I got 8 quail chicks. I’m keeping them in a 2 story rabbit hutch. There is a little ramp for them to go down to the first floor, but for now I’m keeping them only on the second floor. Is this space big enough for 8 quail chicks?
