After my Texas A&Ms were all murdered by a rat, (except Jake, the lucky one, who escaped by flying up to the top of the chicken coop) We decided to get Jake some new friends. We saw an ad on preloved for some harlequin quail (2 hens and 3 cocks) for 10 quid, we thought it was too good to miss. When we got them home we found out they hadn't been clipped, as they whirred around the room. Do we need to clip them? Will it stop them flying? So, we put Jake in a HUGE (and i mean huge) cardboard box, and blocked up the top as we released the harlequins into there. Within moments (after we had caught them all) they started pecking at Jake's eyes and pushing her away from the food and water....BUT THEY ARE SO TINY!!!! I have separated them. Do i need to get another Texas A&M or Japanese or something more like her? And can she live on her own? She is content with strolling around our house at the moment, but can she sleep in the box with the harlequins? Any advice would be appreciated, Thank You.
