    Quail pacing often - don't know why

    They have that at the Lowe's near me so I'll go snag that. I just squished done bluberries and popped them in the ice cube tray and I'll see how she likes it. It was just a picture of the cage with everything I described in it.

    Quail pacing often - don't know why

    What's something I could use to create a see-through barrier? They've been known to try to eat plastic wrap before so I can't do that. I like the frozen fruit cube idea. Can't figure out how to get the image to be posted directly into the post like it usually does instead of as an attachment...

    Quail pacing often - don't know why

    (This is true for both my quail cages as they're replicas of each other): There's an upper level that provides cover (it's a platform that's a third of the length of the cage with a ramp attached) and she used to have a plant in her cage, but she and her partner kept eating it so I had to take...

    Quail pacing often - don't know why

    Hi everybody, No other threads about quail pacing could really answer what's going on with my button quail. I'm sick and groggy so this post is a little rambly, bear with me. She has been pacing a lot for a while, probably over a month. She used to do it for a short while and then would stop...

    Quail died, need help diagnosing

    I wasn't able to do the autopsy, but his partner is doing fine physically, although she's been so stressed out since he died. :(

    Quail died, need help diagnosing

    Hey everybody, Unfortunately I found one of my button quail dead this morning, and I'd like to see if there are any signs I should look for with the body to make sure it wasn't a disease or parasite that the other quail in the cage could get. I thought the cause might have been dehydration...

    Cages for button quails? (Not DIY cages)

    Hi everybody, I used to have a large tank for my buttons that I divided in two when they got to 6 weeks, but it was a hassle to haul around when I needed to so I resold it to a friend. I got an idea from a Facebook group to get a large guinea pig cage for them instead, but I did not realise...

    Sand dyed my quails!

    I think it was actually supposed to be a dietary supplement for reptiles - it's made to be fine enough so they don't get impacted. I didn't read the bag much before, I just saw it was $7 instead of $17! I was just using potting soil before but a friend recommended pet safe sand, I don't remember...

    Sand dyed my quails!

    I figure the colouration comes from the Beta Carotene which seems fine given it's a plant pigment. I'll laugh at my birds with a clear conscience now before switching out their bath.

    Sand dyed my quails!

    So since the orange sand bag was the cheapest they had at the store that didn't have grains too fine that was what I got, but unfortunately and hilariously it has dyed my buttons orange. Is the dye in the sand harmful to them? Either way I think I'm going to switch what I use for their baths.

    Male button quail chasing female

    Hi there, I wasn't able to upload a video, but I have two male button quails that have been chasing after one of the female quails today. One of them (the original chasing quail, before the other one joined in) seemed to be attempting to peck at her. My quails, most likely two males and three...
