It's normal for me. I keep some of mine in pairs because they seem happy that way. Maybe I just have weird quails though.

You are not the only one! :( My rooster has enough choices, but he prefer to mate only with his Berta. I had to separate them a while ago. He really liked the new girls, but had no idea what to do with them. He started jumping on Berta every time a new hen walked passed him until she had a small hole in her head. He calmed down a lot now that they are alone.

I guess some quails prefer being in pairs :)
