I am new to raising quail. I have about 20 bobwhites. but anyway about 2 weeks ago, my first quail starting laying. but since they have reached maturity level, the males have begun tearing apart my females heads. i have plenty of females for my males, (2 females for 1 male). are they doing this when mating? it is happening to all my females and i dont know what to do? should i take out some males? right now when i see one being pecked, i put it in a crate (the intensive care box, i call it) and they heal just fine. but what can i do to stop this?????? need help!!!!!
