Moving Ginger and the chicks
I decided not to create a separate run for Ginger and her 11 chicks. Instead, today I moved her to the quailhouse. I was expecting her to use one of the unoccupied hutches as a nest box - I put her and the chicks into one but left it open so she could wander around the quailhouse. Within minutes she had abandoned the hutch. The chicks went with her to wander around with the quail. Tonight she is sitting on the floor of the quailhouse with the chicks tucked up under her wings. She looks very settled.
