Just a few hours ago I bought my first King Quail; a wild-type adult male. I would have bought a pair, but there were no females available and they are apparently difficult to buy anywhere for the time being. I am keeping my quail in a cardboard box until I bleach its actual cage (it needs to be bleached because my chicken had been in it a few times when it was very young), and two attempts at handling it have resulted in me having to play a game of hide-and-seek with it in the living room. Fortunately it has seemingly not had any fatal collisions yet, but I do not want this to happen again. I have read about King Quail being confiding enough to follow people around their houses. Is there any way that I can make mine more confiding? If not, would it be better not to handle it at all? Thanks in advance.
