    I was thinking about planting some native trees and shrubs in my back yard and was hoping the wild king quails would move in. Anyone got any idea what I should plant in my back yard? Also what do plants do they eat in the wild im thinking of planting some plants that they might like to eat

    Thanks

    Where on earth do you live that has wild king quail? (super cool btw)

    Plant milo and millet. Both grow a stalk that eventually produces seeds that all birds love.

    Thanks heaps I will plant all plants that where mentioned.

    Kikithebird I'm in Queensland, you have 2 budgies and kakariki, that's awesome! Wish I could get kakriki but unfortunately I can't find any hand reared ones in my area[​IMG]. I do have a sweet little hand reared Lutino cockatiel, had her for about 1 year. Would show you a picture but I'm not sure how to put one up.
