Currently, I have my 2 Chukars in a hutch/ run with about 6 quail (left). My quail keep getting scalped, one by one. We had to cull the one, and I have another one in a tupperware with half of its scalp hanging off, Blukote applied.I know quail will do this to each other, but is there a chance the Chuckars could be doing this? I am unsure of the sex of all of the quails. I have an idea on some, but the others are A&Ms and I can't tell by the color. I get about 2 eggs every other day or so, and I'm getting a Chukar egg every few days, so at least one of those is a female. I have about 20 chickens, 2 ducks, and 2 Red Golden Pheasants that are all housed together in a huge outdoor structure with a coop enclosed. Everyone occasionally goes into the coop. The ducks lay their eggs in the nest boxes and the pheasants (both male) chill in there during the day sometimes, but only the chickens sleep in there at night. Everyone has gotten along fabulously for 3 years. No fighting, no injuries, no sicknesses, etc. I have several banty chickens that are smaller than the chukers and do just fine. I am looking for advice in moving the Chukars into the large enclosure to keep them away from the quail. I don't know if its them that are doing the scalping, but I also think the Chuckars would enjoy the other pen much better and perhaps this could help with the quail scalping problem. Advice? Opinions? Comments? Thanks.
