    Stray cat ate my quail

    All of them. Hard to hate the cat, because it wasn't just a kill for fun thing. It ATE them. So I am guessing it was feral and VERY hungry. I am doing a total rebuild on the pen. All hardware netting. So if you have jumbo browns for sale in spring, be sure to look me up

    HELP for little "Twister"??

    New hatch. Found her head flopped over her back sideways ...laying on her back. She and her clutch-mates hatched last night. Mom already kicked her out of the nest. I am guessing some kind of neurological issue, but she seems strong so I am willing to give her a chance. So far I have taken some...

    Sexing question - new pix

    My coturnix quail are a few weeks old now. I have been watching them feather out and I am not seeing anyone with redish feathers on the breast. In fact they are all pretty speckled. Do coturnix quail go through a period where they look like girls and then boys get their "big kid feathers"? Ducks...

    There's one in every crowd! - new pic

    Picked up my coturnix quail babies from the feed store the other day. 5 are typical and seem oblivious to the fact that a person is feeding them and changing their water. They freak out a little when the "giant hand" reaches in to fuss with things, but are generally absorbed in their little...

    HELP! They changed the feed! Only 22% protein!!!

    I can no longer get game bird/meat bird starter. Naturewise stopped making 28% starter and now just has a generic 22% protein crumble. NOW WHAT?!?!?! I have found a great game bird feed online, but with shipping I am sure it is going to end up costing me around $50/bag. What could I...

    All girls?!?!?!

    Do I need to buy a powerball ticket??? All pure Welsh Harlequins. 6 of the little fuzzballs. This one has the darkest bill in the batch. This is how mom's bill looked when she hatched. "Does this come in any other flavors?" Anyone see any boys? There was one egg I found when...

    Not sure what it was. The pen netting is torn down and Cartman (Welsh Harlequin drake) had his neck broken. Wendy (WH hen) also had a neck injury. Some blood and some wheezing. Possibly punctured through. She is resting in a straw filled tote in the back room. If she makes it through the night I...

    My duck is injured and a pain in the butt :P

    My June hatch silver welsh harlequin, Prairie Dawn, has somehow injured her wing. Maybe one of the boys got a little rough with her. Not sure. Anyway, her wing is drooping and I can see her shoulder twitching like she is having muscle spasms. We tried wrapping her in vet wrap to keep her wing in...

    Micro ducks and chicken it the soy?

    We have our share of micro ducks and runt chickens popping up on the forum. I have wondered if it was some form a dwarfism, but I am suspecting something, GMO soy and GMO corn. "Campbell hamsters that have a fast reproduction rate were fed for two years with ordinary soya beans...

    A broody coturnix??? New Photos!

    I got lazy about collecting eggs from the quail pen...lots of overtime at work and garden work. So when I went egg hunting I found my quail Keiko doing an imitation of a fluffy pancake on the spot where they like to lay eggs. She didn't move when I opened the hutch door and totally gave me the...
