I just became a proud owner of the 2 very cute little quail. Their names are Penquin & Chickadee. I set them up in an aquarium 36 x 18 x 16 tall I put a thin layer of sand on the bottom and covered this with pine chips. I have a couple large flat rocks at one end to put their food dishes behind so they won't kick sand and pine into them. They have a large cave in there also. They love to sand bath and are a joy to watch.
