I have three coturnix. one male two females. the females are laying for about two weeks now. Everything was just fine, and this morning the male started pulling the feathers out of quail number 2's head. I over turned a small box with an opening so she could get out of his sight, and it worked for a while. We left for a bit and when we got back she has bloody spots on her head. She has been separated, but... I'd rather have her than a brutish male quail. what's up with him? 2square feet per bird correct? He was fine during the heat wave, but we have had a lot of rain storms the last 24 hours. could that have anything to do with it? I will get an incubator, hatch his offspring- and eat him. little stinker. any other suggestions besides consumption of the offender?
