I have a very broody quail that was beating up everyone else in the coop so we separated her with her eggs in a cat carrier. It's been 18 days and she has a chick! The chick looks healthy. We've never had a broody quail maintain interest for the whole time of incubation. We've only hatched quail with an incubator. What should we do to help her and keep the chick alive? Should we take the little chick away from her and put it in a separate brooder? The weather is going to be in the mid70s through low 80s this week. Any advice would be appreciated.
