Hi I'm new to quail. Everything I know is from reading Monarc's tutorial. Thank you Monarc. I got 10 babies in April 8th. They all seem happy and healthy and I have paired them up as I have 5 each sex. One female blows up (fluffs her feathers) when I walk up to the cage and walks up to me when I open the door. I didn't know if it was threatening mode but when I pet her she deflates. Is this normal or a sign of some problem. I feed them gamebird starter with, I believe, 30% protein and occasionally give them boiled egg. She lays an egg a day. She seems very content with her cage and mate. They are housed on wire. I have a tub of sand in their cage for them to dust bathe in. Here is a picture of her sitting in a gallon ice cream tub feeder and the next picture is me petting her and her deflating. And while I'm at it here is her mate. Thanks for any input. She reminds me of a broody hen somewhat!
