Aggressive Quails

Hi everyone,
I'm new to this forum.
My name is Leanne and I have an avairy in my backyard that consists of 2 cockatiels (1 male, 1 female) and 2 female quails.

We recently purchased a male quail so we can start breeding them.
For the first 2 weeks he was happily running around the avairy floor with the two females, he was dominant and there were no problems.

For the past 3 days now, the female quails have been pulling at his feathers from his head, neck, stomach and back.
I know this is not normal because we have never had problems with our quails in the past.

The male does not defend himself.

Does anyone have any advice for us?
Perhaps someone has experienced the same problem we are having now?

I'll appreciate any help I can get.

Thank you.
