    Hopefully the link above works! It is my daughter tickling our soft boy Tan. He seems to adore it and even asked for more when he was standing back upright - pecking my finger to say more everytime I stopped scratching under his chin.

    I tried my other quails, both male and female but only Tan will lay back and enjoy this. He's always been a cuddly tame boy.

    I've seen online other quails that do enjoy this which is what made me try it to see what he would do. I just wonder, it's not a natural state even among themselves to lay on their back or to groom each other in such a way?? Or is it? Maybe behind closed doors! Lol
