    I have 5 bobwhites,They are almost full grown and it looks like two males and three females. Will I need to separate the males this year or ever? Will they pair up or do I need to keep separate pens. Also since they are hand raised and very well fed will they lay this year or are they seasonal like the wild ones?

    Not 100% Sure, But All My Birds Lay After 1 Yr. If They Have A Very Large Space They May Do Fine In A Colony Or Covey... If They Will Be In A Smaller Space I'd Split Them Into A Pair And A Trio
