NEED HELP [URGENTLY] GETING READY FOR BABY KING QUAIL CHICKS

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

hi im funny quails a few months ago I just got quails 3 to be exact 1 boy and 2 girls they've started laying eggs but they don't use their nesting box instead they made a nest next to it they peek in to have a look at the box but they hardly go into it they are tame now and take mealworms from my hand but I had a few questions with them to help me along the way

 

what can they not eat?
Can/how can u encourage them to be broody?
How long does it take for eggs to hatch?
Whenever they get scared from cats and stuff in the night they fly up and hit their heads is there a way I can prevent that?
If the eggs do hatch what can I do to help the chicks?

 

thanks also to help plz send me private messages and I will reply

Is it bad if the roo quail starts peaking at the girl and then walks away
The girl didn't care dose that mean she might have mites or lice and should I treat that before one of the eggs hatch. 😟

As long as the face pecking is gentle and doesn't hurt the female, I wouldn't worry. I've seen mine do the same. I interpret it as curiosity - there might be a feather that looks a little different and they just want to check it out.
