Hi everyone, I have a single pair of buttonquail that we keep as pets. They've been together for about 6 months now. She lays eggs regularly and usually incubates them for about a week and then stops, so I'm sure on their sexes My question is that about 70% of the time, they are fine together- they snuggle up at night, occassionally preen each other, etc. However, the last few weeks he has been chasing her around an AWFUL lot, and pecking at the back of her neck. There's no blood/injury, but she has a small bald spot there. She definitely seems bothered by him when he gets aggressive, but then in a few hours they'll be fine again. It does seem to be worse when they have a nest. I don't want to separate them, because they seem distressed when they are apart, and I don't have other quail to switch up the pairings. So, is this normal? Should I be worried? Any suggestions on what might calm them down?
