Well I'm having a problem with some of my quail. I have 5 silver button quail, 1 male 4 females and 3 Chinese painted 1 male and 2 females. They all live together in a large cage which is two floors. I went out to check on them today and give them so greens ect and noticed that the male button and the female and male painted have had their heads pecked at. This has happened all of a sudden because they have been living along nicely and not had a single issue, so this whole scalping incident has come out of the blue. Can anyone explain why this might of happened, if I leave them will they just sort out dominance and I won't have an issue with them again or will this lead to a death? Any help/advice so very much appreciated. Also I can't separate to a different pen because I don't have a spare one right now.
