Hello I'm into day 4 of having Quail. No eggs yet.
They are in a 4'^2 box, last night I put leaves in there. I was getting tired of constantly cleaning the cage. It has greatly reduced the smell if not completely eliminated it (I keep them inside) I will continue layering the leaves. The box is 2' high as well. [Will be adding another box for more room to run around, and a sand shower room.]
The girls seem to love it. They started lying down(lounging around really), and I feel like thats a great thing to help promote eggs to be laid:
What are other sings that eggs are to come?
Now I was handling the Quail, because they are still a novelty to me. I picked one up, I think I squeezed it too hard and it puked. It looks fine now, I don't think thats a question, probably looking for a comment on my derp.
Lastly, the more natural their environment, ie: leaves on the ground instead of mesh, this should help promote better eggs and mood right?
