    Hi everybody!! I have so far gotten 2 pheasants, a Male and female, Bonnie and Clyde. 3 quails, Poppy, Tansy and Ivy. I'm beginning to think Tansy is male as this quail lacks spots on the chest, I do believe they are Coturnix quails. I also have 3 Ameraucana chicks. Now the pheasants and quails are mature. I have only seen one egg from one quail and no more, any suggestions are welcome. We are currently working on enclosing an area for the pheasants so they have flight space. I am feeding a lil hay and crumble for their diet. They will have plenty of shade and room to wander, any ideas on plants, compost, table scraps?? I welcome any advice y'all have, thank you so much!!

    Post some pix of the pheasants and the chicks.. I currently just have chickens as pets. No pigeons at this time.
    I give my chickens table scraps. No raw potatoes, but cooked are fine. No sweets like cake, no scraps high in salt, and nothing spoiled.
    WISHING YOU BEST...................................... :highfive:

    Hi @Patchouli ! Welcome to BYC :frow Interesting mix you have there - unfortunately I can't answer your question because I don't know anything about the first two :idunno and I guess your chicks are on the crumble, but I'm sure other more knowledgeable folk will be along soon to advise you
