I got Scrappy when he was a young adult male and he was a feisty bugger who'd run at you all puffed up and chattering angrily. However with paitence, love and lots of cuddles, I have tamed him to the point he'll just lay in your lap for pets and leans against your hand. He also crows at people if they don't give him attention. It will take time and paitence, Scrappy is nearly 4 years old now and is only as tame as he is because of near enough daily handling and coddling as he is essentially an unofficial emotional support bird at this point, even when he was all fighty, I handled him and his late brother Bambi daily and let them walk around outside the cage during the day and put them away at night... If they didn't go back in the cage themselves. XPHow do you get your quail tamed like that? (Steps maybe)
I do that too once they're 4 or 5 days old. The first few days I give it to them in a shallow dish and on a paper towel.to be honest I usually use the base of the normal feeder you'd get at TSC but leave the top off for the chicks so that I know they can find the food okay. They will typically sleep in it for the first week or so. Once there big enough I put the top back on it.
