The elementary school hatched bobwhite quail and my aunt is bringing them to me on Sunday to finish brooding. They are 3 weeks old. The idea is to eventually let them loose to join the other quail flocks. They have released them near my house every year for umpteen years. Last year they let them go too early and I found some eaten, so this year I thought I'd brood them and let them get bigger before releasing them. I think there are about 2 doz. quail. So what will they need? - Are they OK in the house without a light? - When can they go outside? - Do they need to be on wire or are shavings OK? - Can I feed them Flockraiser? - What age should they be before I turn them loose? What else do I need to know?
