I recently got a female button quail, she is pretty young, but I'm not sure how young. I currently have her in an old guinea pig cage lined with newspaper. She seems to enjoy it and I added a shoebox with a hole in it so she can hide when she feels like it. She eats and drinks quite well and is very vocal. I got her some baby tears (The plant) and she lays in it sometimes. She is the size and shape of an egg (I don't know if that's important or not) but that is why I named her Yolk. She is skiddish when I pick her up, but happily runs around my room when out. She makes some noise as she sleeps, it sounds like a very soft, high pitched whistle. She poops a lot for her size but I'm assuming that's normal. She also only eats if she is sitting in her food bowl but she's eating, so I don't stop her. I read about the basics for quail care and was wondering if there is anything else I should be doing. Thank you to those who can help!
