Hi. A couple weeks ago one of my quails had a heart attack and died. His mate stopped laying and began to cry out for him (though I believe this is normal). I had raised these quails by hand from when they were 2 days old and they are very used to handling. In fact they like patting. However after this quail died the female started to act strange and she started making strange calls whenever I went to pick her up.
I couple months ago I got 3 more quails as I only had the two and i didn't want her to get exhausted. I started slowly moving them in together but after the male died his mate began to fight with the other quails. Now they are all in separate enclosures and I don't know what to do.
