    Hello! Today I rescued a Coturnix quail from a battery cage where she could barely walk, as the floor was rusted wire. It was so small, on top of having 30 other quail in the same cage. I let her walk for the first time on the grass. She was really wobbly. I then introduced her to my other quail, Pablo, and Frida. she and Frida are the best of buds, and Pablo adores her as well, although he is still skeptical of her. I named her Claudette, Claude for short after Claude Monet, to fit the theme given to my first two quail, named after Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo. Claude has no feathers on her back, but she loves to cuddle and be held.

    It sounds like Claude has had a rough time of it. That’s so nice of you to take her in. I hope she settles well with her new pals :)

    Unfortunately, I wasn't planning on getting Claude so at the time I didn't have room for rescuing more than one:hit

    Claude is certain lucky to have "found" you!
    Wishing the best for her. :)

    Claude's one lucky little bird. I hope she settles in safely and enjoys her new home :).

    So great too that your other birds accepted her.
