I am a teacher and we are currently studying bald eagles. As part of our bald eagle studies we are attempting to hatch and raise quail. We have had a successful hatch of 13 quail from 20 eggs. The quail are doing great in their brooders and with a live camera feed and such the students are learning like never before. I am far from a bird expert and am seeking some advice. We would like to keep the quail throughout the year and have them lay eggs so we can continue the process and eventually have the students take the incubators home to see if they can hatch them on their own. Before we get to that point we obviously need to keep them alive. What would be our best method of keeping the quail alive after the brooder? We were thinking of building a flight pen at our school. We also have a small courtyard where we thought of netting the top of the courtyard so they cannot escape. The issue with this is that we live in Iowa and winters can become quite cold. Does anyone have a good suggestions, sites, or help so that we can treat these quail with great care so we can continue to learn from them throughout the year? Thanks for any help.
