    That is a button quail, and yes it is a male. You can get a female for him.

    Yep! That's a male button quail, and very handsome at that. Yes, you'll need to get him a couple of females :)

    Male Button quail. You could get him a female or two for companions. He also needs a larger cage with smaller floor wire. And different food if you already haven't.
