We only have two quail, both female and raised together from the same hatch, and they live together in a 2x4 pen ( in process of building a bigger outdoor area), fed a 27% protein gamebird crumble with mealworms as treats. One of them has become quite broody and started getting extremely aggressive with her sister, chasing her down and pecking her relentlessly whenever she leaves the eggs. The meeker sister tries to run, but her leg is weak from an old injury, and she ends up just hunkering down and getting pecked repeatedly. They have a bunch of small cardboard boxes and branches to provide cover and separate water/food on opposite ends. The meeker quail gets very distressed and calls out if she's separated from the other or if there's a barrier to prevent access between them. Thoughts? If we get quail chicks, is it possible that the beleaguered one will 'adopt' them and be content with their company? Thank you for any suggestions.
