Because I only have one cage, and I am due to have Chinese quails hatching soon.
I brood them together if I have less than 30 coturnix in the brooder, which for me is pretty empty, so basically make sure they have room. That way the little guys can run away if they need to. At 3 weeks old I take the buttons out and put them in a different brooder, at this age they can fly much better than coturnix will attempt to fly out every time you open the brooder.Because I only have one cage, and I am due to have Chinese quails hatching soon.
