I have taken in 12 unwanted adult Coturnix. The man I got them from said that they will not raise/set/ hatch their own young since they are not out in the wild. Is this true? Also, some of them look pretty rough like maybe there has been some fighting or some super rough breeding going on. There were a lot of birds in fairly small cages, so I am sure that was part of the problem. They have a lot more room, plenty of food and water, straw, hiding places and sand for bathing now so hopefully that will help, but in the meantime is there any thing I can do to help them heal up or at least protect the backs on the girls.? I know that there are aprons for the hens, are there aprons for quail if so is it reasonable to try and use them?
