Hello, Just read many articles online that says their life expectancy is under 1 year and the mortality rate is 90% within its first year? Really? I never knew that...how come so short? So that means all the ones I picked out to breed this year will be gone by the following year? OMG! I mean, even if you raise them like pets and not as productions in large pens/avairy...will that change anything? I am so bummed to find this out because most of mine right now are SOOO mellow. Took a long time to make them like that. Anyone raised them before here? Any advice would be great. Looking forward to keeping them for at least 3-4 years!!! - Tommy PS: What about for the California Valley Quail, is that true for them too?
