    DO A SEARCH HERE FOR BROODER SETUPS... THERE MUST BE CLOSE TO 100 STRINGS WITH IT COVERED.

    AS A GENERAL RULE NO COTURNIX WILL NOT INCUBATE OR BROOD CHICKS... THERES THE OCCAISIONAL RARE BIRD.... STRESS OCCAISIONAL AND RARE


    HOWEVER, THEY ARE FAIRLY EASY TO INCUBATE ONCE YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO..... DID YA BY ANY CHANCE GET TO RESCUE AN INCUBATOR TOO? [​IMG]


    OH, AND .....

    I keep mine in a solid bottomed plastic rodent cage. It has a large door in the top, and two smaller ones on the side. Since yours are young, you could just hang a heat lamp over the top. The quail may be able to get out through the wire though, so until thay grow, a box with wire mesh on the top might be best.
