    Hey! New to this forum. I live in England uk, and at night we're averaging 2/3 degrees Celsius. Would this be to cold for 6 week old Japanese quail to go out??? There are two other hens out side already, at about a year old.

    I'm in the UK to, where are you? We are in west cheshire.

    I moved our coturnix Jumbo's out at just 5 weeks about 3 weeks ago. We only have four & they are doing fine.

    Got another 24 eggs in the bator due to hatch in the next 7 days to.

    Ours are in just a pen with a wooden low roofed box wrapped in a tarp in with them.

    They are hardy, just give them an area out of drafts.

    Mind the older birds don't pick on them.

    I'm down in Gloucestershire. They'd be going into a chicken coop... You think it'll be to cold??
