Hi! thanks for letting me join the group!! I really appreciate it.
These are photos of the abandoned quail we found in our yard. We found him about 2 months ago. He is growing and so affectionate and friendly.
I have had chickens and ducks and geese most of my life but never quails. Our baby is growing and seems happy and healthy except for shedding skin and for that we are putting coconut oil on the skin. We are feeding him canned cat food which is what the human society recommended and he loves it....along with a few berries and apple pieces.
We are unsure of the sex or kind of quail...all we know is that he lives up to the name we gave...Sweetie!
We keep fresh water and grit available and feed about 3 times a day now. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated....We really love having a quail in the house!
