    [​IMG] Looks good!! What are they dust-bathing in? I'm new to quail and don't know what exactly to give my birds to roll in. [​IMG] Another idea--I found my guys were mucking up their water in a bad way, so I put a water bottle (for hamsters etc.) on their cage and they took to it in no time! Also saves you from having to wash a poopy waterer twice a day... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    another water method that isn't as clean as the water bottle method (but also cheaper than the water bottle method cuz some bottles are priceey) LOL!

    ANywho a small tub of butter, ofcourse USE the butter lol, clean out the tub, take the lid off cut a coturnix head sized hole in the tub... put lid back on...fill up with water..and wala...coturnix can drink, and walk over it and can't get it as dirty as fast. [​IMG] However in my experience it STILL needs wrinsed out everday because they DO manage to foul it up still [​IMG]
