im just trying to get an idea of how tame these quail get?

mine (gambels and cali) will sit on my feet and sometimes and eat from my hand hand but wont let me catch them (easily anyway)

do they get any tamer?

I think you have maxed out the tameness of these breeds and have done a wonderful job at that! These breeds can be sort of skittish to begin with, so if they are eating from your hands and sit on your feet, you are definitely doing something right to calm them down! Good job!!

That's good then, I didn't know what to expect.

They were raised in the living room until they went outside so have seen a lot of people from hatch. Plus Iike to just watch them sometimes .

They are quite skittish (trying to catch them isn't the easiest)

My tame quail do the same too. They come up to me, jump on my knees when I'm sitting, peck me, but they will shy away if I try to touch them.
