Okay, so I found this quail trying to drink out of the swimming pool.. I've taken care of baby birds before, but I have come to realize that quails get needy and lonely.. and I can't figure out what to do for it. It's already imprinting on me, and will cry nonstop until I hold it. I don't know how to get another one, and I worry that it will be depressed. My last day of school is tomorrow, so I will have plenty of time to spend with it, but I can't be there every waking moment. The good thing is it sleeps. Alone. Haha. So I don't hear it crying all night, and if I cover my side of its cage so it can't see me, it stops crying as well. Also, right now I have him in an aquarium. I know the internet advises boxes, but the cage I have has a heating pad on the bottom that he likes to lay on, and I don't need to run any light besides opening the blinds to let in the sunlight. But, I don't know what to do for the future when it gets too large for the cage?? Also, it pecks at the ground where I've put crushed up variants of food and insect diet, but it never seems to actually.. get any..? Are the bites just too small for me to see or is it not eating? I named him Cody, but I have no idea if he's a boy or a girl so if there's any way to tell that by this age please do let me know. Any kind of advice is great. Thanks!
