Hello all, I just want to know if the quail is the right bird for me. I am thinking about Silkies, Buff Orpingtons, or Quails. Please let me know if you think there are other good species. No parrots or cockatoos please. Here is what I am looking for. I would like a beloved companion to share all of my free time with. I want a bird that is affectionate, love sitting in my lap or on me, like being pet, and isn't too expensive. I would love if I would be able to keep the bird in my room, but I can make exceptions. I live in West Virginia, which is Humid Continental, so we have hot summers and cold winters. Edible eggs would be nice, but not at all a priority.
