    Stupid Idea- Unless.....? bonnet for quail?

    It’s odd, but I have tried separating them and he goes bonkers, calling for the other two and rampaging around the extra hutch I move him to. The other two become very agitated as well, calling and pacing the cage

    Stupid Idea- Unless.....? bonnet for quail?

    Got it! Thanks all, this was just me being stupid. That’s what I get for knitting hats for my nieces! Made me think I could apply it to quails as well:p silly!

    Stupid Idea- Unless.....? bonnet for quail?

    Hey! Idea! My quails are all settled and laying eggs like there’s no tomorrow! 2-1 a day on a regular basis. I have developed quite the taste for quail eggs! So creamy and rich! my female’s bald spot seems to be getting dry, and I bought some blue-kote to try and moisten it or I’ll use Vaseline...

    Feather Loss on Male's Head?

    Will do, then! I’ll drape a towel over the cage for the rest of the weekend, as they’ll only be there until Monday, but I’ll try to get around soon to fixing up the new cage. The male only ever bonks when I’m around, as he tries to attack me. Should I just try to limit contact besides feed until...

    Feather Loss on Male's Head?

    Gotcha! I can’t fix the roof height, but what can I add to soften it? Should I drape a towel on the top? It’s a wire lid on a basket right now, but the new hutch on Monday will be a wood lid that opens like a chest.

    Feather Loss on Male's Head?

    Honestly I think that may be it! They have a rather low lid, I did that because I thought it’d be less painful if they did wind up hitting the top-any ways to fix it? Will it detriment health or egg laying to have the bald areas?

    Feather Loss on Male's Head?

    Okay here are the photos. One female has no feather loss, and one male and one female both have this kind of head loss the image if of the males’ feather loss, but it looks identical on the girl. No other feather loss on rest of the body. The cage looks a little messy because of weekly...

    Can Quails Eat Canned Chickpeas?

    OK! I was just wanting some variety because everything I read said they love extra treats and they wouldn't TOUCH anything! Good to know!

    Can Quails Eat Canned Chickpeas?

    Hello! Quails are doing great, rather noisy but I have one (very horny) male and two females, they all get along very well and I have had no issues with fights or stress plucking, which I was worried about. I have them on grit and feed, but I wanted to add canned chickpeas, but should I rinse...

    How to Prepare Quails for Days Alone?

    My quails are five weeks old, and I am going to be leaving them for about three nights by themselves for a trip. If I stockpile their food and water, will I need to have anyone come feed or water them? I have neighbors that can do it but they have never raise quail so I’m hesitant to expose my...

    Best way to calm when vent sexing?

    Hey all! It’s that time I’ve been dreading...sexing the quail. I’ve never done it before, but I researched how to do it, but what’s the best way to calm the quails down WHILE I do it? Cover the head? I don’t want them to get traumatized because just recently they’ve started allowing me to pick...
