    I just received a pair of these beautiful birds.
    I currently have them in a small 3x5 cage with wire floor.
    I feed them a locally produced 30 percent gamebird food.
    I can find next to no info on breeding these beautiful new world Quail.
    Any body else on this forum raise these birds?
    How about other rare new world quail.?
    Any breeding advice ?

    Hhmmm, Thanks ,
    I knew they were rare, but was hoping there was someone out there raising Elegant quail that could offer me a few tips.
