I'm at work, my mom called me telling me that she had been at the feed store, and there was an injured button quail. They separated it from the rest, and are holding it for me. I'll pick it up in about 2 hours when I get off from work. I don't know the full extent of the injuries, my mom said there looked like there was something wrong with one of its legs, and a sore under the wing. I'll know more when I get there. Anyways, I don't have any experience with quail (though I've been wanting buttons for quite awhile). I know they should be kept in pairs, but seeing as this one is injured, am I right to keep it single for now? My feed store doesn't carry them often, so it might not be easy to get it a buddy later on. Should I pick up two, and keep them in separate cages until the injured one is better, then try introducing them? And how do I tell male from female? My mom said they are about 2 inches long right now, is this full grown, or at least old enough to determine their sex?
