This is my 3rd attempt at raising and bredding Coturnix. The first 2 tiimes had disaster with predators before I finally figured out how to build the kind of enclosure I want without it beig infiltrated by rats, weasels, hawks, etc. I've never had any last long enough to breed. Now I got it right and my enclosure is pretty safe and secure. Haven't had any murders since its been finished. I have 5 quail, about 8 weeks old....no eggs and no crow yet. Not sure what's going on. About 2 weeks ago, I tried to introduce 2 more, about 4 weeks old and they were attacked pretty badly by 1 (for sure) and possibly otthers, so I removed them and put them back with the younger flock. I have seen this one quail being aggressive with its flock mates, as well. At one point, I noticed a little cut and blood on 2 of their heads as well, but now they're ok. Not sure what this means for the first 5, but I still have no idea about the sexes of them. I have another group of 12, about 4 weeks old, along with the other 2 I tried to introduce before, that are ready to get out of the brooder and into the pen/coop. Will there be safety in numbers? Should I remove the aggressive quail for a while until the newbies get settled? Should we just eat the aggressiive one, as we will be eating the unwanted males anyway. One of the 2 middle aged quail is already crowing like crazy and im going to keep him for breeding. So, what do ya'll think about the situation?
