I've got so many introductions to be made but I'm not sure how easy it will be or best idea of how to go about it? Firstly I have my week old chicks. I'll call them batch 1. They were hatched in an incubater. Then I have daddy quail who was removed from mummy quail as she is brooding batch 2 and didn't want him around. So.... Can daddy move in with batch 1 chicks at any stage? At mo I have him in a separate cage right next to them and he has made a funny grunting noise at them and tried to peck through the bars. The chicks were scared of him at first but now que up to look at him and one even tried pecking back at him! Long term plan is to keep three females from batch 1 to live with him and mummy quail. So mummy quail also needs introducing to batch 1 chicks one day. Next is getting mummy and daddy quail back together once she has finished hatching and raising her own chicks (batch 2). As they used to be together before will she take him back once her brooding instinct is finished? And lastly there are chicks batch 1 to meet chicks batch 2. I don't plan on keeping any batch 2 chicks as they will be sons and daughters of mummy and daddy quail so close related. Batch 1 are from online eggs so I want to keep some females for daddy and some males separate from them as group of three males. The rest I will sell. But until then will need to separate male chicks from female chicks ... Therefore will chicks from batch 1 mix with chicks from batch 2?? Batch 1 chicks will be two weeks older.
