    If you're wondering why their names are after dinosaurs it's because they looked and sounded like dinosaurs when born...they're temporary names until I sell them.
    (just so they don't have to be called a number)

    BTW if your also wondering why you see three heads in the fist pic...One did die...it was deformed...

    Okay please give me some comments...not trying to go OT but they ARE $85 each...pick up only...Support my quail fund

    How can anything that starts out in life looking like that [​IMG] end up being such a pretty bird? My Ozzie just turned 15.

    I know! you should see when they're FIRST born! They're only they size of a quarter...Much more fragile than any button quail for the fact they have no down to protect them...so if you even touch them the wrong way they could die...

    I had a cockatiel once but it died a year after I got her because she had birthdefectes like one of her toes was crocked and never got fixed but when we got her I know about her toe and thats what drew me to her
