    All of them. Hard to hate the cat, because it wasn't just a kill for fun thing. It ATE them. So I am guessing it was feral and VERY hungry.

    I am doing a total rebuild on the pen. All hardware cloth...ne netting.

    So if you have jumbo browns for sale in spring, be sure to look me up [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear about your quail...
    Yup, musta been very hungry, or really likes quail.

    Is it snowing where you are?
    Getting a lot here in the SE part, guess I need to take some pics and post em.

    Don't have any quail, to help you out.....

    Well getting rid of that one cat will not solve the problem, if the cat can get them other predators can too. Sounds like the rebuild is a great idea.

    And wow what a group of kind and generous people you all are! [​IMG]
