    If you only have one its calling for more... They dont like to be alone they will call non stop if they dont have a friend with them.. My buttons even sleep together .. If I take one out the other screams til I put it back... What type of quail is it ? Is it drafty where the tank is .. and also buy Heat do you mean Heat lamp? It may be too hot if you are putting extra heat in ..

    What part of the world are you in quailraisingman? Buttons cannot tolerate temperatures too low for very long.
    Am I correct the one you had remaining escaped it's cage and is loose in the house?

    It got out ??? Good luck catching it.. I hope its not stuck somewhere and was calling for help... Poor thing.. Listen for it next time and try to get it back in its cage.. And by outside I hope you dont mean to release it .. Please dont its illegal and cannot survive.. they are domestic....
