I picked up 5 CVQ at a swap last month as youngsters, they are growing and eating and drinking just fine. They're fun to watch. I have several questions about them though as I really know nothing about this breed of quail, my experience has been with Blue Scale, Coturnix and Buttons. Are the CVQ similar in care requirements to the Blue Scale? And I'm wondering how I'm going to sex them, are they dimorphic? Are they seasonal layers or will they lay year round? I'm feeding a gamebird grower direct from the mill so I know it's fresh. I don't feed them anything else. Should I? They are just starting to get their little question mark tops now (the oldest is starting to color up with adult plumage), and are staggered in age over about 2 weeks I'm going to guess based on what I've seen them grow since I've had them. And will they be needing a soft topped flight when they are mature so they don't fly up and break a neck on a solid surface? I know my buttons were like torpedoes when they took flight, so I always kept them in a cage with a lower ceiling so they couldn't hurt themselves. I guess I'm kind of surprised and pleased I have not lost a single one, knock on wood. They so far seem very easy to keep, or perhaps I've just been lucky so far.
