Bobwhite feathers look ruffled, normal?
Oh, bobwhites are so cute! Normally I'd say over breeding, but with bobwhites it's usually recommended to have just 1 or 2 females with a male, so I don't think over breeding is very likely when you have 3. Perhaps it's just a weird molt or something, but I'd spend some time watching them from a distance and see if any kind of aggression is going on. Perhaps the last female wants the male for herself.
