OKKKKK, I have delt with chicks, just never quail. I was picking up some pullets from a guy and he had some baby quail. one of them was differently colored than the others and not running around or looking to well. I knew with the others picking on it, it wouldn't make it so I bought it. I am at my grandparents currently. we have a brooder set up for it and some fine chick food. we also have the water in a cap. its warm enough but it's shaky and not good on its feed. it alsmost seems as if someone helped it hatch, if u know what I mean. I need all your info on quail. I am pretty expirenced with chicks, is there much a difference besides size and flight and looks? I will post some pics soon maybe.
