I have read about the 6-7 week releasing too.   But in my yard I always let go adult Bobs early May because I have picked my breeders and let the rest go.   This is far from ideal Bob habitat but every yr late Aug-sept. a brood of bobs about 8-10 wk old
shows up.  No native Bobs around my area in CT. 

Are they ones born and brooded in the wild surviving?    This is what I'm wanting to do is release a few around my house where I can keep the varmits thinned way down.  We do have a few wild coveys around  hoping they will meet up with the wild ones and increase some numbers.

You need some cover that is suited for quail.  Info on quail habitat is everywhere.  I said older Bobs released in may will try to rear young in the wild.  The more adults
released will rise the odds and better habitat will also rise thier odds.  These 2nd generation quail are much wilder and have a big advantage over young bobwhites released into the wild.
