I have raised jap quail for years but got a new batch of 8 hens several months ago. The hens have been dropping off suddenly without appearing obviously sick at a rate of 1 every week or two for the last couple of months...they are no more than a few months old. I’ve just had my 5th loss in he new batch. I’ve been caring for them in the same way as always and am confused as to why i’m suddenly experiencing such a high rate of loss. I’m in Brisbane Australia and we’ve just had a very hot summer and now very wet weather but that’s the same every year. I have an 8 year old daughter who loves the quail and is just beside herself! I’m trying I explain o her hat this his not the norm. Any thoughts or ideas? Could it just have been a bad batch with weak genetics? I got them from a big quail farm here and have never had quail from there before. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
