Thanks for the replies. I’ll get the some hidey places. I went out last night to close the coop and they were snoozing in the run! Not a walk in so I was on my hands and knees in the dark and wet trying to shoo them in. I think I like them, but they seem so unpredictable so far. I’ve had these since Sunday, could I add a couple more to them from the same breeder? Same age etc. Trying to up my chances of eggs.
Hi, I’m new to quail and bought 3 girls at approx 8-10 weeks old. They’re in a classic Eglu with run. I’ve had them a few days and still no eggs. Can they hold on to them if nervous? At first they seemed quite tame but they seem to be getting more and more anxious of me. Can they be tamed from this age and how might I do it? What should I give them to do? The run is like a huge expanse of nothingness compared to their size. I found them as active and adventurous since I got them in the rain today. Do they like rain/water? Any other personality quirks about quail that might be unexpected? Good or bad. Thanks
