crazy white quail

post #1 of 7

I have a crazy white quail that runs around the cage stuck in reverse, backwards where ever he goes.It looks like bumber cars as he backs into every thing.It a 10x10 cage,so he gets up some good speed.After 30 min or so,he puts gear back in forward and goes forward for a short time.????????
