    I was wounding if coturnix and bobwhite quail can survive the winter in Alaska. I have coturnix and bobwhite quail in a barn the water freeze's at night i have a regular light bulb in the barn for them to see because in gets dark around 6:00 pm. I have pigeons and chickens with them the pigeons do very well in the winter i am not to sure about the chickens its my first time have the my bantams in that barn, I had guineas in the barn last year they made it through the winter alright.

    They survive EXTREME Tempuratures. In the cold I mean. They should be fine as long as you stuff them for body fat. And they have room to get out of the cold and inside and cuddle up. Its getting very cold in ontario too Mine are powering through it like its 20 degrees!
