    I have just recently started with Button Quail but I would say you are on the right path. I have a setup with several that I am trying to figure out which ones are male or female, if I end up figuring that out I would be glad to give you a girlfriend for him lol.

    Good luck with the setup, my LOVE LOVE LOVE live mealworms and fresh cut grass. Keep in touch and we will see if I can get your lil lonely guy a girlfriend.

    Just make sure no wire for flooring. Gamebird starter or maintenance crumbles for food. Unmedicated.
    Mealworms a plus.

    Mix finch seeds to crumbles,add calcium carbonate (oyster shell).
