    Can we talk about how fast coturnix grow because I am absolutely amazed by it! My coturnix are now a little over a week old and they already have fully feathered wings and I'm sure the rest of them is not far behind. Does anyone have pictures of their growth week by week? I am taking pictures as I go. Also I always put my birds outside as soon as they are fully feathered in spring. Is that the same with quail?? Or should a wait until they are a bit larger?

    I'd wait until they are 3 1/2 weeks to put them outside at the earliest. Wait until they aren't full of blood feathers [​IMG]

    Monarch reads all the quail posts before they are posted. She can
    read minds. You should see the tricks she makes her quail do. One
    sings the Star Spangled Banner, in tune even. [​IMG]
