african harlequins 3 males and 2 females getting along.
probably established some sort of order, with one male up top of it all
My guess is wait tell its breeding season.It will probably change....cva34
I need some harlies! Like, NOW!
What will come first for me? The harlies, the valleys or the gambels?!
Which ever hatches first

Oh, let's now add penguin-looking tuxedoish button quail to the list
*EDIT* P.S. Sorry to derail this thread!
Quote:i have 19 due on saturday! i hope they are a good hatch... cross your fingers! i got them from tony in NH and they were sent to PA (me) all intact! not a single break! the best packaging job i'v ever seen. and i have dealt with a LOT of shipped quail eggs. some better than others. but TONYS METHOD works best IMO...
Tony knows his birds I think you are in good hands.
Thank you for the kind words.
Hey Jaysfine,remember those 2 pairs were together for about 2 years.Having an extra male will probably interupt the breeding.To get better breeding results,I would pair them off and switch males every other week and include all 3 males with the switching,and your fertility should never be a problem.I know as a colony,fertility was not good for me,but I didn't have the space to seperate.Well I did,but the pens I had were for pheasants.These harlequins were a wim purchase and I enjoyed them while I had them.I may get them again later on,but more focus to pheasants.I even got rid of the ringnecks and bobwhites that I raise to sell to guys training their dogs.So now I am raising birds just for myself and selling off young when available.
