They all have hardware cloth so I know nothing can get in and I haven't seen any animal or signs of animals around. They all have boxes/shelters too, but I've noticed they'd rather sit in the rain than use them. So I tarp them in the rain, or walk them over to our porch to cover.
That's good to know about stress. They've all seeemed ok in their cages but I might try spreading them out a bit more too.
You tarp them when it rains then take the tarp off? You actually move their entire enclosure? That right there can stress the quail. Try to find a way to keep the rain off and don't change it. They can stress over the strangest things. Also, list your location in your siggy so we can better help you. Are you in a warm climate? Southern hemisphere? I live in one of the hottest places on earth so I don't sweat it most of the year if they get wet, they love the water. If you live where it's cold protect them from getting wet.
