So we have 5 Button Quail chicks in the brooder that hatched today. The full story is in my thread "yolk sac?" 3 of them are doing really well, moving around and eating and drinking. 2 of them I am worried about. I am using flour sack dish towels that I bought at Walmart. I am hoping that they have enough traction? The 3 or doing fine getting around, and I really don't think the flooring is the problem with the other two, just paranoid I guess. One of the 2 is much smaller than all the others, and even though he hatched this morning and his feathers of course should be dry, he is not fluffed out. I really don't think he will make it, but I am hoping. I have given him and a few of the others water from a dropper to be sure they were drinking. Some of them I have actually seen drink from the lid with marbles. The other one that is doing poorly just seems to sleep or kind of flail around. He doesn't seem to open his eyes at all? He seemed fine when he first hatched. And there seems to be a big difference in people's opinion on how long to leave them in the bator. Some are saying take them out as soon as they are dry, but I am also hearing to leave them in the bator for up to 24 hours????? Why so different on info? If you research it online, one place said you should leave them in the bator overnight??? The Quail lady I got them from on here insists they should be moved as soon as fluffy. I am not at all doubting her, really honestly, truly I am not. Like I said, I am just really paranoid... first time and all. And I still have 11 eggs in the bator...... I do have shelf liner in the brooder under the flour sack towel, but before I started using the brooder, I had the bright idea of sprinkling some fine bird grit on the liner... now I am afraid to remove the towel. I feel like such an idiot for not knowing this stuff!!!
