    Hey everyone, been a while so figured I'd give an update. Here's a picture of the Coturnix quail, they are now 4 weeks old and my first ever hatch from incubator. I still can not believe how fast they grow. Last night my other eggs started hatching, picture of those coming up.

    Nice little birdies.. What is their final destiny, and can they already fly away at this age??? I keep pigeons, and they can fly at 4 weeks.
    WISHING YOU BEST and[​IMG]

    Thank you cavemanrich. I think we are just going to raise them to eat and keep some hens and a few rooster. I didn't think they could fly but we moved them to the bigger cage when they were 4 weeks old and when I raised the lid on small cage one flew out and hit me in the head lol.
