    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I have some quail questions! On Friday, I'm getting button quail eggs and I'm wondering if I should use my Hovabator or get a different type of incubator? And do you folks have any recommendations for food brands for young chicks? One more thing; suggestions for a brooder lamp + bulbs? Thanks!

    welcome to the site, you will get lots of help and information on here.
    i have not hatched button quails only coturnix but i would gather any incubator would work.
    i use an infrared light for heating my quails.
    turkey crumb food is high in protein so it would be the best.
