How many quail hens? Size of cage? How many roosters in same cage? How many quail do you have all together?
I have 5 cages of approx 2’ x 2’. Each cage has 1 boy and 5 girls. A couple times I’ve had a hen be aggressive, so a swap occurs and usually aggressive hen not an issue in new cage. Since all cages are within small area and all sides are mesh, all mybirds can see and/ or hear each other, so not like introducing a brand new bird into a cage. If I buy new birds, they either make a new cage themselves, or more than one new bird is added to the cage andthen they are monitored to make sure nothing too horrible occurs. But, there’s been a few bloody wounds and pecked eyes.
I had 5 hens and a rooster in a cage 24" X 30". They are all September hatch-lings. I guess I'll have to find a way to get the newby associated with the flock but safe from them until they get familiar like in the articale suggested above.
