The girls are both nearly two so I thought I was be kind to them letting them live out the rest of their lives in peace :) I am fairly new to quails so I don't know how two older birds would react to a younger male? Also would it be ok to then integrate new females with an older male as & when Tammy...
No she doesn't have a mate, she was Tillman's favorite girl until he passed away last autumn, but now lives with just her female companion Tilly. Are you suggesting she is trying to attract a mate?
My Tammy has taken to sitting on top of their plastic house & seems to be what I can only describe as vibrating her wings. When she does it she is lying all tucked in & closes her eyes & vibrates loudly enough for it to sound as though is purring slightly. Any ideas why she is doing this?

Mine are coturnix too & they have been really really loud & they were also off their grit for a few days, I wonder if this is because they aren't currently laying?
I haven't really noticed any difference with what my girls are drinking but they have been singing ( or according to my husband ) shouting very loudly. I had wondered if this was due to the cold weather? Any thoughts?
I thought that Tammy's laying days were over but on monday & then again she laid a shell less egg. Yesterday she laid a proper egg but it was a very different colour to her previous eggs, Very strange, any ideas on what I should make of it?
Well, Tammy hasn't laid any eggs since her "lash" but she still seems happy & healthy . I will continue to keep an eye on her & feel a bit sad that it looks like she has laid her last egg as she has laid so well, but so long as she well I am happy
Yesterday only one of my 2 girls laid which is highly unusual & today, to my horror Tammy laid what I think ( having done some frantic online research ) what is known as a "lash". Has anyone else ever experienced this?
