PostPosted: Sat May 17, 2008 2:24 pm 
Hello Im new here, I Have a question for you guys. O.k so my mountain quail just hatched yesterday and today they are in the brooder with food and water with a temp of about 98 F. The chicks look weak, is that normal?? I mean... when i open the brooder to check on the chicks they start bouncing off the walls! But as soon as i close the door to the brooder they look dead agian. Any suggestions? Thanks!! Smile

First off welcome to the site, we are all here to have fun and give help.

I have several sets of Coturnix Quail in Brooders and they are doing the same thing. Usually after a week they come out of it. They are just trying to gain some strength in their legs, which cant hold up their body that long.

I had learned that they grow while sleeping... they have little fits of activity, then crash! They're face first in the food dish! Laughing They don't do that so much after they mature. Wink
