    These are the 6 I got a few days ago! [​IMG] They're 5-6w old. They are SOOOOOO docile! The kids hold them and they snuggle in their hands. TOO cute! Here are some pics. I have a sheer fabric, as you can see, draped just under the top of the cage just in case they decide to boink up. So far, not much boinking from them. [​IMG] I have 1/2" hardware cloth going all around the cage and the door. So far, so good! We'll probably keep them in the garage during the winter..... plenty of windows in there. [​IMG]

    Do quail get really tame? I'm just wondering because they look so cute...

    1st looks like it COULD be a female, feather sexing is not accurate/normally accurate with this color.

    The second one is a hen, though! [​IMG] Congrats!

    Oh, and with regular handling they can become very tame! Like mini chickens!
