I recently posted about my female quail being sick. She passed a few minutes ago. Im left with her mate. Can he be kept alone for the remainder of his life? I assume he knows she's gone. Usuallly he crows for her but hes silent. He stood staring at her body for awhile before I took her out . He is 3 years old. All my other quail have died off. I didn't want to get more unless necessary. Id like to take a break from quail or try a different bird out. It's so heart breaking when they pass and their lifespan is so short.
