It is said that baby quail are born knowing that they are “damn delicious”. They run around the incubator as they hatch, even with half the egg still attached to them.
We leave our chicks in the incubator for no longer than 24 hours before moving them to the brooder.
The temperature of the brooder should be at about 95.5F.
We use a wild game feed with protein of 27% to feed our quail and use our coffee grinder to make it finer for the chicks.
Quail mature very quickly, developing feathers just days after hatching.
