Ok, so I've been in breeding quail now for about 2-3 months. I've been having a blast but do have a few questions. First off, I'm very limited to space, so I can only keep a good 60 birds for laying, but they are not laying at full potential yet. I have eggs in my incubator, but I am waiting on them to hatch, I have about 450 eggs set to hatch anywheres from this upcoming week to 15 more days. I have 19 chicks in my brooder but have 4 people waiting on some quail. I bought some eggs last week to set in my incubator but they guy I deal with said that I can buy day old chicks from him for only .05 more, so .35 per chick, and not have to mess to much with the hassle of how many chicks are going to hatch. I have one incubator that has an egg turner and this summer I'm buying a cabinet with egg turner so my hatch rate should increase with that. I can fit 400 chicks into my inside brooder(first week) but I am dealing with 3 different varieties of quail, D-1, Texas A & M and the James Marie Pharaoh, so I'm pretty sure I need to keep the chicks separated once they hatch. So I'm working on building other brooders for housing them. Any tips would help a bunch..
