We recently got a few Georgia Giants ( 4 males, 8 females) and boy they are flighty! Not that it is a bad thing necessarily, just surprising. At the same time we aquired a pair of vally quail. They are not nearly so flighty. Are there some quail species that are naturally less flighty than others? Don't remember reading anything about that in the stickies.

Got 7 Butlers now!
Lost one day...

They are just over a month old. For two days they have been fine under 17 hours of white light. It was easier to have them in the quail room with the coturnix. I know that they stressed out today while I was installing a new water line for the two week old coturnix chicks. In only a few hours after I finished that job and then came back to do the evening cleanup and collect eggs one was dead with half of it's feathers pulled.


They are in a double session in a GQF cloned cage. Put a towel over the top, back and front to cut the light. Hope for the best the auto-waterers and front load feeders make the work to serve the birds so much easier.

Any thoughts?
