Hi all! I guess I should give some brief background info. I have hand raised chicks from day old peeps before and they became incredibly tame. I am now away at college and will be moving into an apartment next year that will allow pets (birds included). I have a lot questions about quail. If I get them as chicks and handle them frequently, do they usually tame well? As in, I have hopes that I could put a flight suit on them and have them fly/run around the apartment supervised and be able to be held as well as live in a cage while I am not home. I have seen one on instagram that is supposedly a bobwhite quail and it is incredibly tame. My next concern is acquiring said chicks when they are that young. Would it be best if I bought some fertilized eggs and hatched them myself? I know some people from home that have farms, so I could give them the ones I decided not to keep. I would love to have a hen be happy and alone, but I realize that is not fair so I'd prefer a male/female pair. I also realize they cannot be sexed as chicks so I don't want to find someone with chicks and end up getting two males. The noise they would make is of most concern. I've been doing some research as far as a habitat to keep them in, but I am hearing conflicting reports as to what breed is naturally the calmest. I think Coturnix Quail have come up the most as being tamable. I have plenty of time to figure things out, my current lease doesn't run up until June 30th, 2015. They just seem so precious and I want to make sure I am making a good choice! Hopefully someone has some good answers for me Thanks!
