    Question Temperatures for quail

    Just wondering if you ever got quail started. I'm in Texas also and have similar questions about temperature. If about 91* F makes them pant, what will 100* do?

    Guinea Fowl are great but I wouldn't get any

    I think they are an interesting bird. We aren't on a big enough block to have them otherwise I might consider them. Wonder if they keep possums away.

    Rooster Collars to stop crowing what's your thoughts?

    One way to sort out any bullying in the henhouse is to isolate the bully away from the other hens for a week or so. Then put her back in; the group dynamic will be very different.
