I got 12 select breeders from James Marie farms 2 weeks ago. I lost 1 hen last week. I could not find any wounds she just curled up and died. I started with 9 hens and 3 roosters. I had to dispatch 1 rooster today because he had his eye plucked out and an open wound on his head so the other 2 roosters were attacking that open wound. Now I'm down to 8 hens and two roosters and wondering if i should split them up. Any thoughts? I'm very happy with the Quail I got. they are 6 and 8 weeks old and i have been getting 5 eggs every day. Now i am about to order an incubator. leaning towards Hova-bator 1588. Found one on ebay for $185.00 with turner. I have chickens but only interested in hatching quail eggs. Is there another incubator that anyone would suggest that is good for Quail? Needs to hold 35 to 50 Quail eggs and have turner Also. No worries on the bird i had to dispatch today. He will be on the pit tomorrow and delicious.
