So. I just figured out two out of the three quail I have are male. I didn't realize it before because they weren't showing any signs or anything. (They aren't pharoh I think they are...Tibetan maybe) my female layed an egg in a nest she made on the 7th and usually I take the egg out but I decided to wait and see what she would do. I put a small upside down cardboard box over the nest and there is a big whole cut out in the side as a door. Now she has 4 eggs in the nest and both the males and her go in there throughout the day to turn the eggs and sometimes sit on them. I'm surprised the males haven't been quarrelling but it kind of seems as though both of them think they are the father. I know that the chicks might not turn out so great as is what I'm hearing from other people's experience when letting the parents incubate the eggs themselves but this is just an experiment. I was wondering if there was anything I could do to help them. Maybe take care of the eggs better. And, does she know if they are fertile or not, and does she get rid of them if they aren't? I haven't touched the eggs because I read they might not go back to the nest since they are pretty skittish. Any help about any of the is would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
