- a heat lamp must be used for the first 4-6 weeks with a temperature starting at 90-95°F decreasing by 5°F each week
- chicks cannot be on wire for the first 7-10 days and must instead start on soft padding (drawer liners work well) and after 5 days pine shavings can be added
- a no-drown waterer is highly recommended
- chicks need access to clean water 24 hours a day
- quail chicks will need feed as soon as you get them home. We recommend game starter of 22-28%. We have 24% non-medicated game starter crumb available here in small quantities
- quail chicks must be kept indoors and out of draft away from other pets and small children
- we sell all of our quail chicks boxed and do not ship. Local pick up in north Etobicoke only.
- chicks must be kept warm during transport. Crank the heater in your car to the point where you are uncomfortably hot to ensure they are hot enough
