    I some how managed to hatch 7 out of 10 eggs. The quails are a month old now and I have some questions.

    1) When do they develop their crest (droop) feathers fully?

    2) When do they develop adult plumage?

    3) When do I switch them to regular gamebird feed?

    4) when do they start looking like the adult quail (size and shape) ?

    5) At what age do they breed?
