    You likely will not wind up with 60 birds out of 60 eggs. I would wait and get a nice size brooder for them, then count to see how many you hatch. They will need a brooder for several weeks, so you have time. I don't know the space requirements for quail, but I hope this helps a little. [​IMG]

    Approx. 10x6 1quial per foot of floor space is the general rule

    Hope that helps

    I would say "10-14 2X2 cages". The 13th and 14th cage/s are for your misfits, or the 2 dozen eggs you just can't help but hatch. [​IMG]
