Recommended time for Quail vs. Ticks Project Presentation by Ranger Eric. Our presentation will detail the life cycle of Quail, their ecology, why we started this project in 2003, and how it can help our environment and community. Also, included with the presentation is My Bobwhite Quail Journal (free download), tick information, and free educator support. BEGIN EGG INCUBATION as per instructions in Quail Mail.
Eggs will hatch in ~23 days. Set up Brooder to 105 F. Transfer chicks to brooder once their feathers have fluffed. Call CEED to make arrangements to deliver your chicks (1-14 days old) to one of our outdoor flight cages in various locations.
We are busy raising the Quail and teaching them how to fly and forage for food. Check our CEED website calendar for details about a Quail Release near you, which is open to the general public.
Quail Release! Now go eat those ticks!
