    I am trying to breed my quail but every time I place the male on top of the female he falls off! Should I place the female on her back?



    Sorry BYC'rs! I just had to see how many would actually read the title and fall for the joke! he he he he![​IMG]

    Shusssh...Play along and see how many visit the page![​IMG][​IMG]

    Hopefully it will get a chuckle or cackle as they read the question.

    Hopefully......No harm ....no FOWL

    If you put them in a smaller cage, say... 5 inches long by 3 inches wide by 6 inches tall, he won't have room to fall off. Then, no matter what, eventually it will happen. If you keep them like that, she has no choice but to set on the eggs till they hatch. Cha-Ching! Free money when you sell those chicks!
    I hope this helped with your breeding problem, but if it doesn't, I'm going to need you to post a short video of your method before I can analyze and offer more expert advice

    Oh yeah...
    I like DerekF's method, but maybe you can put some treats down, too, so they won't try to squirm apart.
    Good luck!

    I pour a glass of Dom PĂ©rignon and lit a cigarette for them afterwards, but then the temp dropped and it started snowing so that effort was futile.....Dang TN weather!

    1. Good Ideas, I will give each of them a try ..................some day!
    2. I would video the ordeal, but honestly..... I am unsure of their age! lol
    3. As for the experts....so you have experience in doing this hummmm? he he he


    Thanks for playing guys and gals! [​IMG] yall made my day.....and that means a lot!!!!! I mean that.
