    One of my baby quail is really crazy. He runs around and tries to leap out of the box. He peeps a lot all day but he still sleeps sometimes. I don't know how to calm him down. He is scared of me

    Is he the only quail you have? Do you think he might be too hot?

    Well they are rescue and there is two of them. I had to desperate them cause they were picking each other. I might try and put them together again. He had a rough first day because he was separated from his mother by some kids. The other one is pretty hyper too. They are dy scared of me even though they seem to be just born.
