Hello! I'm piking up my first quail today, and there are 10 males, 2 females. (they were free, alright?). I Need to rive to the other side of town to get them, and I have 3 cages for quail. Do the males need to be kept separately? For transportation it may be really difficult not to, unless they will fit into a one of those cases of beer that have separators, lol... I plan on culling all but 2 or 3 of the males, as I have 3 cages. 1 cage for the females and 1 male. 2 other cages for the extra males to be housed separately? (I will likely cull one of them too, I plan to hatch out a few...)
SO: Do the males need to be kept separate during a car ride across town and for a few days until they are butchered? The females will be transported in a different box than the males.
