I have, I think 8, lady quail. One of them has me confused. I cleaned their pen last week and at the same time we moved the three identified males into a separate pen. After the move...I didn't notice it before, one of the remaining "ladies" had fluffed all the feathers on her body and neck. She remained active in the pen walking around and was the first to the mealworm treats. She kept her feathers fluffed for all of the last week, that I was able to observe. At one point early in the fluff I watched as she walked around the pen and another bird started to follow and fluffed as she followed lady Puffs-a-lot. Today, Lady P-a-l was unfluffed when I first walked up to the pen and shortly after began to fluff herself. She really is more active than I think she would be were she actually ill. Any ideas what she is trying to say??? Is fluffing feathers a show of dominance? Weather was cool, was she cold? Would another quail puff up to respond to her puffiness? Any quail behavioralists out there?
