    Hi from N.S.W Australia! I find myself a new mum all of a sudden to 3 Quail bubs and may need some advice.....I will try very hard not to become too attached to these little cuties but it's not going well so far in that department [​IMG]

    I can see how that would be difficult to not get attached (they look like such cute little birds).

    Best of luck to you and thanks for joining us!

    I think you and the quail will be in very good hands, if you post on the quail thread. Best of luck to you.

    Howdy neighbour [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    Please do pop in on the Aussie thread and say hello, you will be welcome.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
