In the Brooder
- Apr 24, 2013
Ok so as i said in a diff post i have a momma button quail sitting on eggs. Today is day 16! I know they can take longer to hatch when momma sits but i was wondering if anyone knows the average time it might take. Also i have them in a cage and im not sure if the babies can escape through the bars, if im not home and they hatch do you think they will run all over the cage or do they tend to stay with mom? I have a tank i can move them too but if im not home i would have to lose them. I have plexi a few inches up from the bottom of the cage so the only way they can get through the bars is if they jump. I feel like a nervous relative sitting in a hospital waiting room waiting for baby news LOL.
