    Ok, so I ordered a bunch of coturnix eggs and have them in the bator. In a little over 2 weeks they will be into the brooder! [​IMG].

    My outdoor pen that they will go into is about 16' x 20' and encosled with 1inch chicken wire. How long will they ahve to be in the brooder before I can put them into thier pen and they will be big enough that they can't excape through the wire?

    Hope that made sense? Thanks!

    3-6 weeks they will be feathered enough to go outside...just make sure they have shelter from the elements!
