    how late can I hatch some quail out in middle Ga.? will the get big enough in a month or so so they will not die on me?

    Being that I am in Indiana, I have no idea what your local winters are like there. How soon does it get how cold? At 8 weeks, chicks will be feathered out nicely, and should be able to handle 60 degrees just fine. If it gets in the 40's, you might want to give them heat at night. Will they be in a draft free coop??

    I'm in Alabama and have quite hatching for the year. It's already getting into the 40's at night so I wouldn't try it. If you do just make sure you will have heat for them and NO DRAFTS.

    What type quail are they? Coturnix maybe but it would be close / others NO
