They really ARE like little chickens. Not very wild acting at all. I moved all 38 of them to their permanent outdoor enclosure on Sunday, and they seem so happy out there. The biggest hit was the large tub of sand for dust bathing. I gave them 2 little houses for sleeping if they choose, and they seem to like to go in and out of those as well. I'm quite amazed that I can just go in there, reach down and pick them up without much struggle at all. They are very calm compared to bobwhites that I raised briefly years ago, and even to my button quail. Cool little birdies, aren't they.
