    Hi All, I will be moving my coturnix quail outside. I have a 3ft by 3ft brooder that I will put inside a dog run 4X8. I live in NY on long Island. so I'm wondering about heating for them? How far should they be away from my chickens and ducks? Should I be locking them in what will be there coop at night? I hear they are stupid as far as knowing to coop themselves at night. how large or small should the doorway be open for them? Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

    Thanks
