Moving the quail chicks
We have moved all 13 of the quail chicks to the quail house. We needed the space in the brooder box back home for some hen chicks which hatched recently. At this point we think the young quail consist of 7 hens and 6 cocks. There will need to be a bit of culling of the males when they are fully grown (in about a month). All the birds settled in well into the quail house with the 16 other birds.
