    I am drawing up plans for next year, I have a person paying for flight pens if he can have the bobs! [​IMG] It's the best agreement ever!

    Anyway, I was thinking that I could build large, 50-100 bird pens for Coturnix and just match up the number of females to males... what do you think?

    Quote:How's fertility? And how do all the males get along? Those are pretty much the only problems I see happening... and since I run weekly fertility tests I don't want to damage them in any way... [​IMG]

    I have pretty good hatch rates. I am running about 85-95% right now. The males get along fairly well. The last time I had one get hurt it was back in the spring. they will lose some feathers every now and then but nothing serious.
