I have some Bobwhite snowflake quail and i was wondering when should they stop using the heat lamp?

Hey there I've never had bobwhite quail, just Coturnix hehe but I'll try to help! How old are they, where are they being kept and where do you live?
there about one month old they are still in the brooder were planning on moving them to the coop but it is not finished and i live in granville county north Carolina near Virginia
I actually think Coturnix and bobwhites mature at different stages so I don't want to incorrectly advise you but hopefully someone with bobwhite experience can help?
At 1 month old they should be in 75 degrees.You start brooding at 95 degrees and subtract 5 degrees each week until at least 6 weeks.Depending on your weather this time of year you may need climatize them a little longer.Going from 65 degrees to 50 overnight may be too drastic for them.
