OK so some of you may be getting sick of me already lol but I really don't have any idea when it comes to quails, or any type of bird or poultry in that matter. I'm just learning as I'm going and considering I did everything I was told, to make sure my quail wouldn't lay so many eggs or want to "mother" them she has actually done so, eeekkk!! So from what research tells me, she will sit anywhere from 18 to 21 days, is this right? Um if it so happens that babies appear, what do I do? My plan was to actually do nothing and leave her to do her thing as I don't really have time to look after chicks and in the "wild" I'm assuming they have no problem keeping their babies warm and healthy? Please I would like loads and loads of advice on mothers incubating, hatching and caring for their young, also do I need to remove the male? He is always seeming to be on guard for her but every now and then gets a little stir crazy but it could just look that way, he is also protective of the eggs n the female when I clean the cage.. will he hurt any chicks after hatching? if there are babies then I only have maybe anywhere from 14 to 16 days to get some knowledge on all this.. not much time to he honest to become an expert hahahah .. if never done anything like this before. Thank you in advance.
