Time to get out of those old clothes.
Like other birds quail also moult and during this time the best thing to do is to give supplements (those given to chickens will be fine) to keep them in tip top condition. Pigeon conditioner is a favourite and is full of oils and vitamins which your quail will love! Being highly image concious quail tend to be very secretive about their moult and it may not be obvious that they are dropping feathers so keep an eye out, also don't expect any eggs as all that preening takes up their time!
