I don't want them to stress, but I am having to drive out 4 hours to retrieve them and I don't want them to be freaking out. Uncle Dal taught me that much with chickens, but button quail are so much smaller. I'll be keeping them in darkened boxes to help the move, but is there anything else I can do? A certain bedding or material that might calm them more effectively? And, does anyone know if "stacked" aviaries would be ideal for caring for chicks? As in, one built atop another? That way the chicks of different ages are safe from bullying. And, is it possible for there to be a 2:1, female-male ratio?
