    How old should quail be before I start introducing them to things like lettuce or spinach? They are just a week old, but very active and flapping their little miniature wings as they run the length of the brooder. I'm a newbie at raising them, but I have to tell you, I have already fallen in love with them and want them happy and enjoying things other than just game starter.

    Thanking you in advance for any information and your knowledge.
