Hi there. I've had my little Lucky since July 18, 2015. I read your other thread and I'm just going to answer those questions here too. I'm not an expert, but I did a lot of research online and with the feed stores and people who have quails. Please get your quail game bird feed. They need a higher protein feed (26-30). Chicken feed only has about half the amount in it (15-16). Bird seed is good as a daily treat, but should not be used as a source food. We got some grit for her as well, because in the wild they will eat some dirt or really tiny "rock" to help with digestion. Our friends who have quails on their farm say the don't give them nesting stuff. They just lay the eggs all over their yard. Lol. But you can if you want. Lucky lives in a rabbit cage in our living room, but she let out everyday when we can watch and socialize with her. Don't use cedar in her cage as it not good for their lungs, but pine shavings, or the stuff used in small animals cages are great; also woodstove pellets. Just may sure nothing is treated with chemicals. We took the wire bottom out, because we read it is not very good for her little footies. We have 2 dogs and a cat and everyone gets along. If anything they are all a bit scared of her when she wants to snuggle with them, so they run away when she tries to - hee hee, it's pretty funny. Lucky is extremely lovable and loves to be handled and loved on! Lucky makes tons of cute sounds and we've figured out which ones are her happy sounds and when she is screeching for our attention. She has imprinted to me has her human; she'll go to anyone, but if I call her or she hasn't been with me in for a little she comes running to me for my loves. She does her natural dusting movement on our carpet or in my hair when I lay on the ground and spread my hair out. They bathe in dirt and not water, but we haven't got her a dusting bath like you get for a chinchilla yet. She really doesn't need it since she is only an in home pet. As you know they poop little hard pellets that are easy to pick up so we don't use a flight suit on her. I hope what little know know helps! We love our little one so much.
