Hello everyone. Since my town doesn’t allow cockerels/roosters and I love a cockerel/roosters crowing I was thinking that a make button quail would be the next best thing. I had a male button quail (Peeper) about 8 years ago. Me and my family hatched him and his sibling in an incubator. They lived in a 30 Gallon long aquarium until Quail died. Then Peeper lived in a bird cage until he jerked over and died. I now know that Peeper died from flip over common in broilers. They ate parakeet feed. I want to keep button quails again and I want to do it right this time. The button quail would live in a large guinea pig cage. He would be handled everyday. He would also be allowed to forage in my front yard several times a week, supervised of course. I have a couple of questions. 1. What is the average lifespan of a button quail? 2. What should I feed a button quail? Game bird feed? All flock feed? 3. Can a male button quail live alone? Can two male button quails live together in harmony? 4. Will he need grit? 5. Can I use electrolytes in his water? 6. What other types of quails make good pets? Thank you in advance for any advice.
