Post by WIGGYSARK on Thu Jul 17, 2008 10:51 am

WE HAVE RECENTLY HATCHED 4 CHINESE PAINTED QUAIL . THEY ARE NOW 6 WEEKS OLD AND WE HAVE JUST INTRODUCED THEM INTO THE AVIARY. THEY HAVE BEEN IN THERE ABOUT 3 DAYS BUT ALL THEY SEEM TO DO IS PARADE ALONG THE REAR WALL OF THE AVIARY. HOW LONG CAN WE EXPEXT THEM TO TAKE TO SETTLE IN PROPERLY AND ROAM AROUND THE AVIARY.

I don't keep CPQs, but I would say different birds take different times to settle in. I guess it's a bit like people. Moving can be quite truamatic for them. Try not to disturb them too much and just let them gradually settle down. I would say a couple of weeks, things normally reach an equilibrium.

What else have you got in the aviary with them? Just making sure they don't feel threatened.

hi wiggy
when the CPQ do what yours are doing, it's a sin of stress, this due to them being moved, they will soon settle down, it's nothing to worry about.
