    Quick time Coturnix Education

    1. spelling is Coturnix it will help you search for info on them better with the correct spelling. They are also known as Japanese Quails.

    2. turn 3 times a day for 15 days, stop and anywhre from day 15 to 18 they should hatch.

    3. for first 15 days humidity around 40-50 once you stop turning up to 65%

    4. feed nonmedicated game bird starter..if you cant find that nonmedicated chick starter, and suppliment with ground up kitty food, if you have it on hand it's best [​IMG]
