    I am going to get quail this summer. I live in Michigan so in the winter the temperature gets below freezing. Would a heated rabbit waterer work for Coturnix quail? What do you use?

    Anything with a heated base will work. Heated dog waterers, even bird bath heaters. If you are going to use plastic water fonts, make sure the heater is does not get too hot. They make water font heaters for plastic poultry waterers as well.

    Enjoy your new quail adventures!
