I had someone coming to buy one of my boy quail chicks yesterday but my ten year old was like noooo don't sell that one! She's taken a liking to one of our boys and said he is one of our best tame ones. He's a golden coturnix (4 weeks old) and has a lovely deep rusty breast. And he did lay down after pecking my sleeve like it was sand in their dust bath and started to go asleep next to my arm. Super cute! So I sold a different one of my boys and my daughter wants to keep Tan (as she's named him) in her room as a special quail to pet and tame up lots. I think it's quite nice as poor boys are not often wanted! We have a white that we don't know if boy or girl yet called Sunny (from when was a yellow chick!). I want to keep this one just because it was the only white we hatched in our incubator. So this one is also being kept with Tan too. If male they can stay together. If Sunny turns out female the Tan can have his own group of girls in my indoor avairy. So, just wondered if anyone has kept a quail indoors and tamed up before? I read a blog online of someone who had a female that roamed free in her house and was tame. She said that she did her business in a set few locations so she put paper down in those areas to catch mess. I don't know about that! I've also read males can be more cute/tame as pets? But my original male is probably the least tame. But Tan was incubated and hatched by us so he is super tame.
