    Hello all, I was just wondering what this is, I am thinking some type of pheasant, possibly a quail? We found it just hanging around at an auction last night, and no one claimed it. I have attached a couple pictures below.Thanks so much!

    Quote:Now this is one giant Zebra Finch quail that you could raise. (Could we call it a GZ quail for a while so it doesn't get kicked back to the partridge section) Cause mhwc and others want to learn to raise them and there's not much out there. JJMR you know how.

    Hey, Alicia rescused it , now she needs to learn how to take care of it, once she gets a permit, probably.
