Thank you , also is it ok if there are 2 boys and 2 girls will the girls need little quail saddles for all the one on one attention?
I have another quetion , when I pick them up they go spastic then they like colapse in my hand you can kinda see it in the pic they just drop there head like there so tired then a few moments later they get all spunky again, are they really wearing them selfs down then perking up that fast or are they playing at calming down to let my guard down or what ?
when the roo is ready to breed he grabs the hen by the back of the head and drags her down..if she wont lay for him he will just keep grabbing her repeatedly by the back of the head and sometimes she will end up scalped....
I wouldnt worry about a saddle, get ya a football helmet off a bobble head figure and put it on the hens!!! Quail can be and are brutal in my limited experience. Thats why i have a triage unit set-up!! However everything is peaceful in the breeding pens now, especially since i did away with an agressive hen and increased my hens per rooster situation.
