My son who is almost 10 was trying to show his quail to his little cousin that was visiting and she wanted to touch one so he opened the door and his only male flew out. GONE! That quick. He tried to find it but couldn't. I still feel bad for him. He actually bought them with his own money that he saved. Anyone near my area with button quail? He already said he would save his money to buy another. His birthday is in October so if anyone is close maybe I could surprise him with another male eventhough I still don't know what to do with them.
