    does anyone have any good ideas for getting the 3 quail that escaped from my run? its 2 males and 1 female, brown coturnix. they could be anywhere in a mile radius and i cannot find them anywhere, been searching for a week. Also is there a risk of them breeding wild, as im sure the local community wouldnt be very happy if they did.
    thanks

    How and why do they keep escapin'? Any quail that have been missing for more than 2 days were probably taken by predators. So sorry. [​IMG]

    2 escaped at the same time, they fly straight up hit the mesh and slide down the side between the mesh and the fence, working on sorting it out right now, got a temporary bit in place to stop them for now. i see why its so much easier to keep them in cages and hutches now [​IMG]
