The quails have completed week 3 of their 5 week cycle. The wild quail chicks are doing well. During the first week, 12 died and during the second week, 14 died. I suspect that this is a natural phenomenon of losing weaker birds. Nine birds died during the third week. Raising quail has many challenges!
The bobwhite quail look healthy and active after completing their third week in the quail surrogator.
I continue to find nightly visitors by using the game cam. This hog didn’t cause any damage but they are certainly a growing problem in Texas.
