    Hi, I live in California where the day temperatures are from 60-80 and night time are around 50-60. I just want to know if it’s safe for my two week old quail can go outside to explore in the grass for a little bit? Then put them in. Not long maybe like 10-20 minutes? Just something for them to have fun and get out of the house. Since they still need there heat lamp I just wanted to know if this is safe or not.

    I wouldn't do that...if you let them go outside they will be gone in a quick chilly minute. Quail are not like chickens, they won't just hang around were you put them out.
    It's also very difficult to recapture them once they know they can get away.

    Oh lol ok. I know that I shouldn’t do it but would it be safe for them at the age that they are in? Because I have a small little gate I can use to keep them in so they don’t get far.
