Hello! We are new to quail and trying to integrate a pair and a trio. Two that we have had awhile weren't kept in the best conditions (came to us pretty pecked and one had bumblefoot) and were outside in overcrowded conditions. The 3 we got most recently (after nursing Cleopatra and Annika back to health) are well cared for and much more tame. We were told that moving all of them to a new home at once would give the best chance of smooth integration (we were picking up a hutch at the same time) and were wondering how to tell when a pecking order is established and how much pecking has to happen before they settle. So far it's just Cleo who is getting aggressive (it figures she'd want to be queen) I'm admittedly soft and maybe not cut out for livestock because I'll cry if they get hurt Initially I removed Cleo (because she was attacking everyone)to see what the others would do and they settled in together fine...but Cleo cried the entire time so I put her back in see what would happen. They seem to have settled but she will still run at and peck the others. No one seems to be bleeding but I'm afraid to leave them unsupervised without knowing what is normal.
