    I finally moved my jumbo quail outside today. They are about 11 weeks old, and have been inside since they hatched [​IMG] I finally moved them to the barn today. I have no way to put a heat lamp on them, so now I'm worried to death!! It is supposed to be 38 degrees tonight, please tell me they will be okay!! [​IMG] I only have a quint, and they are humongous compared to my pharaoh, I would hate for something to happen to them!

    Never lost quail 3 1/2 weeks old and older putting them outside. However the 3 1/2 week olds were out in the end of summer....

    the 5-6 week olds were put out here in the middle of winter...none died [​IMG]
