I have no experience with quail, but for now I would be removing the mail from the girls. Just to prevent more damage. Are you 100% sure the new ones are female?

You should really make your own topic in this section, as others will (who might have more experience) might miss your post now.

I've reported the quail post to the Mods asking them to move it to the Quail section. :)

How are they getting on?

Quail are often cannibalistic and don't do well with introductions? I would be tempted to take the new girls our rather than the males as your existing females may turn on them too. Introduce them really slowly, putting them in a wide based cage (budgie or hamster cage) in their run may work.

I’ve had to take the two new girls away as they were really picking on them and making them bleed but now the two new girls are recovering well in their own run and loving their new run on the grass x

Glad to hear they're settled in their new run :)
