Hey everyone! I realize you guys probably get a ton of posts likes this so I'm sorry to add to the menagerie, but I had a few questions and you all seemed like the best group to approach about them! I'm personally a reptile keeper (don't worry these guys aren't food haha) but I've done a lot of research and after a good while of searching, I've gotten myself two gorgeous Texas A&M Coturnix. We got them about two weeks ago, and they are currently about 5 weeks of age. From all behaviour and appearances, it appears we have a boy and a girl (The boy likes to remind us by crowing about once a day). We think they are already quite attached to each other because if we remove one from the others sight, they both start calling for each other (the male quite louder haha). We are keeping them as indoor pets as we live in the bay area and it's quite cold here! And besides, we don't have a backyard anyways haha. Anywho, our first question is What would you all suggest getting them for dustbaths?? They've started dustbathing in their feed and we realized we don't have an alternative for them to use so they aren't throwing all their food away in attempt to have a good bath. We didn't want to just go to Home Depo and buy sand because being a reptile keeper, I know it can have harmful things in it if eaten. Second question is that we're hoping to Hand Tame them. How does one go about Hand Taming a Coturnix? The male is already incredibly tolerant of contact and being held, and even is just content in perching on our hands and sometimes being pet. Although he's fairly adverse to the process of having a hand reach in and pick him up, understandably. The female used to be like that, but over the last week has seemingly become more and more flighty when it comes to the big bad hand coming near her, and she absolutely detests being held. We take them out every day to run around our kitchen though, and try to have a little physical contact with them, while also trying to avoid stressing them out. Any tips or notes you have about hand taming and raising indoor coturnix would be greatly appreciated! Lastly, while my roommate is fairly familiar with birds, he's primarily a parrot keeper, so these birds are new for both of us. What are signs of a healthy and happy Coturnix? What are good treats for them? What are signs of an unhealthy/stressed out Coturnix? Any health or Red Flags we should look out for as we care for and raise them? This basically sums up my questions at current, thanks in advanced to any help and answers!
