Quail anyone?

Post by Rhasputin on Fri May 25, 2012 8:29 pm

I saw that someone else mentioned they had quails!

And chickens keep getting their own threads, so why not a thread for the quail lovers in the house? Love
I'll have to get some photos later, but I keep coturnix, and button quail. Happy
I have a tibetan coturnix, a white, a pair of golden, and a standard coturnix.
I also have 2 white button quail, and 2 red breasted ones. They're SOOOO tiny!


Anyone else have quail?

No quail here; too many other birds take up our time and space. Big smile Would love to own some someday though! Any pics?

I have an ancient pair of button quail, a Darth Vadar female and a platinum frizzy male.
Before I was a real mousery I was wanting to be a hatchery of button quail, but they are extremely difficult to hatch out. Sad for me anyways, I couldn't seem to keep the humidity at a healthy level for the egg in the incubator.

Platinum/silver

The frizzy is a newer type, in which the feathers curl outward kindof like a rex mouse. I didn't know he was frizzy until his first moult.

Yep yep, I keep button quail as well.
Although not in such large numbers as my mice.
And they aren't as nice as my finches were but they are adorable.
