Have talked with several people working with them and results are good. The older metal units had condensation problems that would kill some of the birds. Now that it's made of plastic that issue has been resolved. You won't have 100% of the chicks make it but a very high percent live to be released. The next problem you have to deal with is predatory animals. The birds will need good cover to avoid hawks and coyotes, or whatever you have in your area. One ranch was putting predator fencing around a large area where the birds were to be released, taking care of the coyote problem (lead poisoning ) then releasing their birds for a higher success rate. And you need good food plots which will keep the birds in a general area and hopefully they'll live long enough to start repopulating and make for good wild quail hunts in the future.
