My pet coturnix rooster is over-fond of one of his hens, to the point where her back is bald from repeated mating attempts. I've watched him, and he will try to breed her 5 times in 10 minutes. We can't really separate them, because when the rooster is alone he will crow incessantly (I time him, a crow every 4 seconds all. day. long.). If we were to separate her, she would break psychologically because quail are flocking animals. I think that's how she became his favorite hen in the first place--she was broken and wouldn't resist him when he'd try to mate her. So, my question is--can you make a saddle for a quail like you would for a chicken? Like, cut up a sock to cover her back?
