    Feeding 11 babies various ages. Help 😩

    this is the original ones. Just have one male left now. They are pretty extreme but the breeder has taken out national titles so I’m guessing that’s the standard they breed to here. I wouldn’t breed them myself but am quite attached to our crazy things.

    Feeding 11 babies various ages. Help 😩

    Can I keep males together if no females?

    They are seperate from my chickens but that’s good to know I’ll be very vigilant about keeping it that way. Trying to seperate is a bit of a nightmare to be honest 🤦‍♀️ I’m just not set up for it this just being temporary. I’ve left the two dog crates in there and they’ve put themselves to bed...

    Hi guys, question for the quail owners. If you were to find a quail would you bother trying to find its owner or as they all kinda look alike would you just go straight to rehoming it?

    Sorry, didn't realise you meant quails. If they are more fragile than chicken I can't imagine how you get any to arrive in one piece. My chicken ones end up half smashed!
