    I bought 2 chinese quails a few weeks ago, I didn't realise until we got home that they're both male. They're really noisy and keep waking us up in the night.
    Are male quails louder than the females? I can return one male and exchange him for a female but will this stop the noise?
    If I keep 1 male will he still keep up with the noise?
    Would returning both males and just having 2 females be better?
    thanks

    Two females would be quiet, I know how annoying they can be lol. Males will always call, even if you get them female companions but if you put them in a place that gets dark at night they will sleep
