    I've been raising bobwhites for a year and I've finally got a hen who's tending to her eggs. The first one hatched yesterday!

    Question - Should I leave the chicks with the mom or should I put them in a brooder? They're currently in a hen house that I can easily close off to keep the other quail out. I'd like to see them raised with their mom if possible.
    I hope this photo loads because it's really cute. :)
