Hi everyone, this is my first time in the "quail" section, and I need a bit of guidance. My father's boss wants me to hatch and raise some quail for him to let loose in the open space behind his house. He said he wants to feed them in the backyard. So I will be getting about 50 eggs, and raising them until they're old enough to be outside. I will be hatching them late April, so the weather should be warmer, and they will be able to go outside as soon as they're ready, but I have no idea when that will be. 5 weeks? 8? I will need to know what to feed them while they're growing, and then what my dad's boss will need to feed them after they're set free. I really have no idea how to go about this, so I'm hoping for as much help as I can get. Thanks so much.
