Yet again, I'm having troubles with my quail :-/
As some of you may remember/ from previous posts, I had problems with 1 quail, and then all the others, picking on one of the males. At that time, I thought it was one particular female.
Well, I have recently put him back in with the others. For about 2 and a half months, they have been fine. There is one male (the one that was picked on a while back) and 5 females.
But just now, I went out and there was a female chasing him around. I am 99% sure it is the same female from ages ago.
BUT I've just found what appears to be a nest in the bed area. There are about 10 eggs in it. I separated the female in here, and just now she was sitting on the nest, and when I sprinkled meal worms she didn't get up.
What I'm wondering is:
Will the male and female ever get along?
Is she nesting?
Why has she suddenly started picking on the male again- just randomly?
