Started hatching on 5/25, today 6/11got my first button quail chick!

I have one question? If the chick needs 95-100 F to survive, how do the wild quails maintain that high temperature?

They don't need fed for up to 24 hours after hatching. They just absorbed their yolk so aren't hungry. Don't put them at room temperature, they need a warm brooder with a heat source. Wild quail would maintain the temperature for the eggs by keeping them under themselves. Their body temp could keep the eggs warm enough.
