This is my first button quail brood, so I'm all about the newbie questions! Thanks for bearing with me. If you only know the following answer for chickens, I can try to judge from your knowledge there on what is right. I'd like any input at this point. There are so many pictures on the net of about one dozen chicks in a small aquarium brooder. I'm starting to wonder how many is too many? I am raising button quail (chinese painted quail) chicks. I have 11 in one ten gallon tank. The first few days, when the chicks are tiny, can be very decieving! It's day four, and I'm wondering what to do as they are growing fast. What is the normal amount of chicks in an aquarium brooder?
