I went out to the hutch this morning and our 2 little bobwhite quail were both dead next to eachother in the nesting box. They were in with 3 Coturnix who were only a week older, all of which we totally fine. Am I missing something developementally with the bobwhites? Of course they took longer to incubate and were smaller overall, but do they develope slower than other quail? Their bodies were completely feathered and their heads not quite. I was completely shocked since there isn't even frost yet but I know it must've been the temps. The coturnix don't even sleep inside the closed side of the hutch so it's easily warm enough for them a night. Any thoughts or experience with this? RIP Max and Monty our dear little pets. These were my 4 yr old son's quail and we've been over the 'Rainbow Bridge' 3 times today. Thanks for any input.
