I got a little Button Quail from a Poultry Swap. He is my first Quail ever! I didn't like quails at first. But he is sticking cute! His facial markings are a bright white, not the off white, so I am assuming he is male. He still has some of his baby down, but he has 90% of his adult feathers. He is so beautiful. And he is so curious. I didn't think they would such little explorers and look around so much. My Questions: What is a good food to feed him? He was raised with the D'Uccle chick, now a Mille Fleur rooster. The guy said they were hatched and grew up together. Should I separate them? I would hate if the little guy got depressed. How long do they usually live? I have seen a lot of posts with sand boxes. What type of sand is good for them? And is the normal chicken feeder and waterer fine for him at this age? Any ideas for a waterer that would work better? I read about Soda Bottle Waterers, but not sure were to start with that. Any help is greatly appreciated! P.S. I will post pictures ASAP. EDIT: WHY DID PUT BUTTON QUAIL!! HE IS A BOBWHITE QUAIL!
