    Opened the quail box to get an egg out lastnight and my male Red Breasted flew out. He's been in the area all night and day and I almost netted him about an hour ago when he came back for the female.. any advice on how to catch him when he comes back?

    btw it wasnt even worth it... the egg was cracked on both side [​IMG]

    TIA

    Came to the conclusion that if we cant net him we're just going to let him. someone about an hour away contacted me and has 14 he's selling for just $2 and has a bunch of different color mutations. so we're just going to get new blood in.
