i recently bought a start of quail, 40 --51/2 wks. old and 10 ....2 1/2 wks. old, they are now 3 wks and 6 wks. today i got my first little corturnix egg, laid in the dust box. i also moved the 2 groups together and having no problems. i have a second cage made and will separate out some male and females for breeders. i plan on a smaller version of the pen that is on the sight, that we all enjoy seeing, to put the breeders into. i have 40 corturnix eggs that should be hatching soon, hopefully. hope i can get those babies to eat as this is my first try with quail.
