What ratio of male to female are you keeping?? I find that mine seem to get along best with a ratio of 1 male to 3-5 female. Seem to keep the ladies under control and the men happy! Wink

Jorge,

I agree with Harrie, 1 male to 3-5 females max. I have what they call colony pens,
1 male to 3 females. If you have a decent size cage or flight pen, you should be able to have several males and females together. Here is a version you can purchase, after seeing a picture of it, I managed to build me one out of all cage wire.

I currently have 3 pairs of breeder Coturnix, which those eggs become flight conditioned. I rotate them around every year, so I keep a pretty fresh set of breeders.
