2 hours ago I unexpectedly received 10 fully grown Coturnix quail. How Winter/cold hardy are these little fellas? Currently I put them in my old chick brooder (no heat lamp) on my backporch, which has glass windows. There is no wind, but it does get below freezing (the dog's water dish always freezes out there). However, even this is a temporary solution until I can get an outside pen built. I have a couple of out buildings, so I can build the pen in a wind-environment. But I really don't want to provide heat to animals unless it is absolutely necessary. Will Coturnix quail survive the cold of an Ohio winter?
