    I can't believe all these people that are hatching quail this time of year!! Do you realize how much they stink!?!?!?! [​IMG]

    They are adorable, almost makes me want to hatch more....but alas, all my brooders are filled with the ones that I hatched too late to put outside before it got cold [​IMG]

    I am prepared for stinky... but if it gets too terrible they have a place outside now...I need initiative to get out there and get it completely ready but it'll only take an afternoon to do [​IMG]

    I have a multi-level packing barn with three basements that are quite easy to keep warm. Quail grow so fast they will be ready for cooler temps in about 4 weeks, but they will stay inside for the good lighting so they start laying quickly. We are now up to 48 hatched. They have to finish tomorrow so I can put in Frizzle eggs by Wednesday (not to mention 30 to 40 more quail eggs)
