When i pressed the vent there was no foam came out... What did it mean..?? But they are males.
How old are they? They don't make as much foam when very young. They can start as young as 6 weeks but typically more like 9+ weeks for foam production.
If there is no foam they may not be in breeding condition. In the dead of winter there is no need for foam production. A sick roo will not produce much foam. If the rooster just bred a hen there will be little foam left. Sometimes just popping out some poop will take a good bit of foam out with it. Stress can also cause a quail roo to have little to no foam. Stress can be just moving to a new cage, new cage mates, new quail in the cage next to his, something upsetting him at night like predators lurking, etc.
