    I hatched some pharoah quail three days ago:). It was so cool to watch! Any tips on raising them? I keep them in a ten gallon aquarium heated by a 125 watt brooder lamp. They have food and water at almost all times, and I change their paper towels twice a day. They seem to be healthy.

    Welcome to BYC! I raise these little guys, also called Coturnix quail, and if you check out the quail section on this site, you will probably find lots of useful info regarding any questions you have. Good luck with your new family members! I love my quail!
