So i got 3 new quail. One male and 2 females. I currently have them in a very large ferret cage in the house. 3'L x 18"W x 18" Tall. Will that be ideal for them to remain indoors? They have full sunlight too, from the bedroom window. I read that they love dust baths, maybe even more so than chickens? I would like to add a dust bath in the cage, but I dont know what size it should be? I would like to be able to keep them in the house, Im very fastidious about cages and keep my pets very clean. Does anyone else have tips about keeping them indoors? If I have to move them outside, what are their tolerances? I live in Canada and it can drop to -25C here in winter. It was very hard to keep chickens because of the freezing temperatures, thats why I opted for quail.....just 3.......*ahem* Im very concerned about chicken math haha Can they be tamed like a normal bird or will they always be spooky? They are very tolerant of my hands in the cage right now. They dont seem to spook. They are quite active and seem to enjoy scuttling about the cage with daily activities. I have a tiny nest box in there right now, but I will change that up for something more appropriate when they reach laying age. They are about 8 weeks old right now. Can I give them grass from the lawn? With my chickens I would dig up a tuft from the field and drop it in the cage. We are just getting new grass growing right now. Can they have dandelions? I know signs from chickens what to look for when they are sick. How do quail act if they are sick? With chickens, a tail down means its got something wrong, but these guys have almost no tail to speak of and they all seem down. Even in pictures. Thanks everyone!
