Week 2 of Cycle 3 for Bobwhite Quail

We lost nine birds in the previous week which is fewer than the 12-15 we typically lose in the first week.


In this picture, you can see exactly how the watering system works – pretty ingenious!




The quails are healthy and vibrant. It is sort of surprising to see them at this size with only a week in the surrogator but these birds were 10 days old when we put them in. The previous quail chicks were only a day old when we put them in.


Occasionally, I’ll get a funny picture on my game cam. This is obviously a wild bird that thought landing on the game cam would be a good idea.
