I've noticed that certain individuals are calmer and less flighty than others by nature, and also that they learn--especially those raised here by us--to recognize when food is coming and to not be quite so terrified of the Hands. We also had a chick once who hatched a full day before her siblings and was handled a lot during that time and became very attached to our hands. Her attachment wore off after a few days with her siblings but it got me wondering... could a quail actually be tame and enjoy human companionship? Personally, I wouldn't bother for myself, because that's not what I like about quail. But each of my older boys have their own breeding group of quail and they would like it if they could raise one from a chick and really tame it down so that it would be a pet. So, experiences? Or is this species just too strong on the prey end of the scale to ever enjoy interaction with another, larger species?
