When I worked at the Zoo we had a few gamble's quail we used as program animals. We raised them alone and they tamed reasonably well (the male would sing with the keepers - cute!). I'd like to do the same with a bobwhite, as I now work at a park in Ohio and we focus on native wildlife. Bobwhite in Ohio makes a pretty good conservation story, and people are always more moved by getting close to the actual animal instead of just hearing about it. I'm wondering if anyone has kept a single bobwhite chick as a "pet", and how well they tame. How much space would a single bobwhite need? Our gamble's seemed fine with a 20x20 (indoor) cage. Any suggestions about how to acquire a single chick? Everyone wants to sell a minimum of 25! How hardy would a single bird be? I'm thinking it would have to live inside.... Thanks in advance!
