I have to get my male quail number down. It is just too hard on the females. I have about a one to one ratio right now and so I rounded up about 75% of the males and have them separated from my females. It is so much calmer for the females and Id like to continue this environment for them. I dont want to keep the males in this cages area particularly but I just dont know what to do with them. Im not going to slaughter them myself. Also, do the males ever calm down, ie could I keep them separated until mating season is over (whenever that is) and then mix them together again for a more peaceful existence?
