Oooh, haha.When I mentioned 'heat source' to get under, I was referring to a heat lamp.
For quail I would recommend putting the heating pad on the floor so they can sit on it.
What i am trying to say is if they aren't touching the pad it isn't doing anything to warm them.Oooh, haha.
They can sit on it or under it, I just did a diy version of those heating plates. They like to sit on it more than under it. When they were little little chicks they liked to be under it but now they want to be on top.
Ok! That is good to know thank you!!!What i am trying to say is if they aren't touching the pad it isn't doing anything to warm them.
If they are under it...it must be low enough that it touches them.
It's easier to just lay it flat fo they have more room to lay on top of it.
