    I've got a couple of quail that are getting picked on pretty hard (bloody heads) and I'm not sure who the culprit is. Btw they are coturnix the fellow that i bought them from said they were 9 weeks old ,not sure myself only two are laying. Just wondering what yall would do ?[​IMG]

    You More Than Likely Have Too Many Roos, Tho It Could Be Just An Overly Amorous 1 At That Young Age Being Too Rough With The Ladies. Tell Us More Info And We'll Be Able To Advise You Better

    Really new to this quail thing 10 birds are in the cage I'm sure one of them is a rooster. [​IMG] Just got my birds black friday I have heard one of them crowing . Coop is 4'X3' not thrilled about injured birds and not afraid to cull.


    Thanks ,

    4x3 Should Be Plenty Of Space For 10 Birds... The Question Now Is Is It 1 Overly Amorous Lad? Or Are 9 Of The Roos? [​IMG]

    Somebody is laying 2 eggs a day that narrows it down to maybe 8 roos.
