    I have three tiny bob white quail from some shipped eggs.. will they be okay with just the three?

    They are staying warm enough/eating and drinking fine.. just worry about loneliness

    They'll Do Fine, But If Your Overly Worried Go To The Dollar Store And Buy An Old Fashioned Feather Duster And Prop It Up In The Corner Of Their Brooder.

    Quote:The very first time I hatched Bobwhites, I only hatched 3 babies. They were completely content with each other and grew to be very close as siblings. They are the only group of my Bobwhite clan that do not fight with each other. (2 males and 1 female. They are now 5 years old). So yours should be fine. [​IMG]
