Caring for Day Old Quail Chicks
Congrats on taking the leap into the amazing world of quail! They can be very tricky the first week or so, so below I've added my best tips for raising day old quail.
-use a quail specific water base or add rocks/marbles etc to the water base so they cannot drown. *enough rocks they can dip their beaks in but not get wet *they get cold and freeze quickly.
-do NOT use shavings as bedding the first week-use paper towels. *they get confused and can eat shavings and I don't recommend ever using sand as it doesn't retain heat and they can freeze and/or mistake it for food.
-I only use the feeder BASE to fill the food until the quail are 2-3wks old and are too big to end up inside the plastic container and suffocate *this is actually way more common than you would think.
-I do not recommend using mason jars for the feeders or waterers as they are heavy and if knocked over they can squish the quail. *sounds silly but it actually has happened.
-the first few days I have food sprinkled around the ground near the feeder and waterer so they realize where the food is. keep the food and water close to the heat source.
My favorite resources for all things quail are:

- Newbie Quail Lovers
-The Self Sufficient Quail
-Quail in the kitchen
