Title: Newbie and have 2 about 2-3 week old Gambel babies. Have lots of questions
Post by: mary1956 on July 23, 2015, 12:23:09 AM
Hi,  I have 2 baby Gambel quails I'm raising. 1 is about 2 weeks old and the other 3 weeks old. What is the ideal temperature to have them at this point?  Also, have them in a large cardboard box with a headlamp attached at one end pointed in their sleeping area. I'm having a heck of a time keeping in at one temperature. I have a blanket covering about 3/4 of the top. They are in the house. I'm in Southern California and right now temps are anywhere from 100 to 65.  Thanks!  Mary
