    I just got my first Coturnix quail last Friday. They are 4-5 weeks old. Today many of them started "jumping" around a lot. They don't seem distressed, just jumping. Is this most likely them getting frisky because they are maturing? or should I be concerned about something? Thanks! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Most likely just mock fighting and playing. It's all part of establishi8ng their pecking order. I'd be far more concerned if they were hanging lethargically in a corner.
