    hes def not a turkey, his markings are stipes and has a bown head pointing in a V shape towards his beak, it looks like a quail chick but apparently they are not common in the UK

    Quail are fairly easy to get hold of here if you know where to look. How did you come by it? That might help us figure out what he is (apart from cute!)
