COME ON QUAIL PEOPLE, WAKE UP!!!
Jeepster, I had quail for a while. Remember reading they don't incubate their eggs well in captivity. I tried and mine didn't but they hatched well in the incubator. Gave mine to a friend because their much appreciated singing went on through the night chumming in predators. I have pens built like Fort Knox but raccoond finally made their way into a huge aviary, ate my 2 beautiful male Red Golden pheasants and almost killed a White peacock. Took 2 months to doctor him back to point I felt he was going to live which he did.
I now have 2 Black Australian swans that verbalize all night long. Won't give up my Gunther and Gracie so am fortifying habitats even more. Have added solar Nite-Guards, done a few other things and may add electric charge wires. Any other suggestions?
