Okay so I tried to search but my phone wont let me! I went out to do the typical food and water chore with the Quail today only to find 2 of my 7 dead. The rest eagerly ate and drank - but I am wondering since it's just so freaking HOT here in Texas, if the heat might have had something to do with it? Also I noticed spiders around the pen lately - is it possible a spider could have bitten them? I didn't see any obvious injury. Is there something else I should look for as a cause to their deaths? Something that can affect the others? Also - my quail are the messiest eaters and waste food BIG TIME! Is there a better feeder - or can you share ideas for food preservations?
