14 quail chicks
We put 20 quail eggs into one of the incubators towards the end of April. 14 have hatched. The chicks are now in the brooder box and will go to the quail house in about 6 weeks. By then we will have a good idea which are males and which are females. We are not looking to keep the males. They will either be rehoused or slaughtered for food (we have someone interested in buying the slaughtered birds).
