I have just noticed in the last 2 days some white foamy stuff in the poop ?
It is the foam substance that aids in mating that male cortunix quail produce when in breeding condition.
Some one's having fun ok!
Thank for your help
I don't know if it's normal for my Button Quail poop to look like that, but it does.
I also have fertile eggs, so maybe it is?
This means you have a rooster.

one last questionfor this rookie, Is the foamy stuff an indicator that mean that the eggs are going to be fertal ?
As long as you have an experienced boy and your hens are of laying age, you can almost be sure that the eggs will be fertile. The foam does not mean that your eggs are definatley fertile, it just means that your boy is going to try his very best to make sure they are.
At the begenning of breeding season m cages are plastered with it.
I'm really not sure if only the males have that foam, one of my coturnix quail hen produces foam when she poops. Anyone?
