I have a new button quail. She is young, however I'm not sure how young. She is very skiddish when I try to handle her but gladly runs around my room when she's out. I have her in a guinea pig cage inside because of the cats in our neighborhood. She does eat and drink a lot, and is very vocal. I have some baby tears (the plant) in there with her so she has some feel of the outdoors. I do take her outside once in a while, but me or my dog will have to stay with her. (My dog is totally fine with all the birds I bring home.) She seems pretty content in her cage and I put a shoe box with a hole in it so she can hide when she feels like it. I read about the basics for quail care and was wondering if there is anything else I should be doing. Thank you to those who can help!
