    Douglas Quail, also called Elegant Quail, likely require similar care to Gamble or Bobwhite quail. There is very little information on their care that I can find, but hopefully info on other quail will help with that. Very little is known about how they live in the wild.

    Thanks for the answer, but is there no one here who breeds them? Or is there some sort of quail forum where i can find breeders?

    I'm not sure. I think there may be some groups who talk about raising game birds, but again, Douglas Quail seem to be very rare (in captivity), so I don't think there are very many breeders.
