Quail: Types of Houses according to Age

A. Brooder House
  Immediately after hatching, quails are brooded with artificial heat needed by the chicks. A 25-watt bulb is usually placed at the middle of the cage. A temperature of 95 degrees Fahrenheit must be maintained during the first week and gradually decreases as the birds develop their feathers. Regulate the temperature and provide proper spacing and appropriate feeding to reduce death of birds. If the birds flock towards the light, the temperature is too low. However if the birds stay away from the light the temperature is too hot. The brooding procedures of chicken are same as in quails.
   After three weeks of brooding, the chicks are fully feathered and ready to be transferred to the layer house.
B. Layer House
   Quails that are to lay eggs are transferred to this house. Elevated slot floor made of bamboo or welded wire is mostly used. This type of house facilitates cleaning. A female quails start laying eggs 41 days from hatching.
