    What are Quail veterinary costs in Ontario,Canada?

    Hello! If you would to skip over the additional information my question is what are they veterinary costs for birds like in Ontario, Canada?

    Tech is not my thing

    Greetings. I joined a few days ago and just now found this to post an introduction. I’m fairly certain my intro is not of much interest to anyone, really, so I’m just using this to try to figure out how to use this site's forums. If I can upload a pic or video, I will.
