    Yep, the title pretty much sums it up. My male quail crows and mounts the other hens like there's no tomorrow but i haven't been finding any of that foam y'all talk about. Another "she" in drag? [​IMG]

    Hmm.. I'm not sure about age, the guy at the store just said "Yup, it's a girl, she should start laying in about 1 or 2 weeks" [​IMG] (so I'm not going to trust his advice lol) however they are getting the required amount of light in a day (8 i think?)...

    NICE looking Tuxedo . Yah , they need 12 - 14 hours of light. i use clear LED Christmas tree lights .they are not expensive to purchase or to run and do the job of supplying sufficient light.

    How many hens? If he is doing a lot of breeding he won't have as much foam. (using it all up so to say) [​IMG]
