    i'd like to 'decorate' my new quail pens to make them look a bit more natural..is there any plants i should avoid??
    any good suggestions?

    the new pens are 1metre long and roughly the same width...not huge but big enough for buttons and cortunix :)

    oregon grape is an excellent plant, the 'grapes' are good for the birds, as well as a grains or grasses of any sort

    Don't put any avocado trees in there [​IMG]...Here in the US most of the native foliage is non poisonous to quail but IDK about Belgium. Definitely avoid anything that might be classified as a "house plant" those tend to come from tropical regions and may be harmful.

    I read somewhere that Parsley is bad for them, is this correct info?

    It varies, some of mine can eat it and some can't, so it really depends. it's like dogs with rice
