What "stuff" would you recommend for people keeping button quail? I think one of my best "finds" were hermit crab dishes. The sides are graduated like little stairs in the dish, and the edges of the dish seem just wide enough for the little babies to perch on to drink water. I use these instead of marble filled dishes. Only problem is that I have to check them several times a day to make sure they have water. The shallow dishes dry out fast. Feather boas from the dollar store. I just cut off a piece and put it in with the babies. They like to crawl in and under it to hide and keep warm. When it gets dirty, I just put a new piece in. Flower pots, even broken ones. My mom broke a ceramic flower pot on her yard this year and was going to throw it out. It made a nice hide out for the buttons. Intact flower pots I turn on their sides and anchor down with a couple of rocks around it and I find they like to sit and hide in them. Sometimes they use them to nest in. Pencil cups also work for this. I have also salvaged pieces of trees that have been cut down. Logs look natural and give them something to climb on, run around and hide behind. Branches that still have leaves on them are popular with my buttons and a branch that had aphids on the leaves were a special treat. Also, if you're going to keep a lot of pairs I use big clear rubbermade bins to keep them in. I just cut out part of the lid, and tape a piece of plastic canvas (craft stores) in with white duct tape. I find it has a nice bounce to it. Keeps them from hurting themselves when they flush.
