I am just starting out with my first quail. My husband brought home 9 in a box, he saw a sign on an old country road and stopped, of course, and bought some quail at random. So there are 5 females and 3 males, yes I know 5+3=8 not 9, as I said I am just starting out with quail and didn't realize how well they fly. So I have them in my brooder for now, will be moving them to their wire cages which I have just been setting up, they are 4 months old, bobwhites. How many males per cage? The cages are big. I don't know how the 5 females will handle 3 males come mating season? I may eat one to even the numbers out. So, can I house 2 males with 5 females and not have fighting? Or should I seperate the 2 males and give them each some females? Help is appreciated, as I surely need it!
