    Hi! I have a question. I ordered the chick-bator w/4 bobwhite eggs. Know zip about quail. I have appropriate housing , but wanted to know about nesting materials,boxes etc. I have raised finches,cockateils,parakeets,conures and love birds. Any input? Also Depending on hatch I might get more in spring from you. Thanks.

    hi i have my bobwhites in pairs in 2'x 2'x 2.5' cages. In side of those cages are a 16''x16'' shelter. Most of them lay there eggs in there but the really love sitting and sleeping on top of it. I pair the up in the spring and summer because some of the males fight with eachother if they are differnet sizes. You can put up to 4 females with one male. I usally run 1-2 females with one male. This gives me the best fertility. Once the weather is starts to cool down like in the mid 30's i put all of my bobwhites together in one run. I usally put 8-10 birds maybe more (depending on size) in a 2' high x 4' long x 2' wide. Inside of that is a shelter about 2' x 1' x 2'. I put hay or straw in that for the winter. I put my eggs in a incubator witha turner. Once thay hatch i put them in a 20 gallon tupaware and on the floor i put down a papertowl or the rubber self matting. This helps them get there legs strong while they are young. If you have any more questions let me know.

    I wouldn't mind some bobwhites, gambels, and all the coturnix varities. I guess I should pre-order huh? I might be all set on coturnix and bobwhite though.
