    yeahhhh that ain't no chicken. lol very cute little thing though!

    I just had the pee scared out of me by some wild (i guess) quail tonight. I went across the road to let a turtle i rescued from my dogs free, and 4 quail (maybe pheasants they were pretty good sized) came running out RIGHT infront of me, I mean if I had of taken another step i would have flattened the first one (or kicked it flying) [​IMG]

    again the little bugger is very cute! such a sweet dovey face.

    Quote:You mean it is wild or did it escape?

    That coloring I seriously doubt it is true wild...especially if they caught it. it was probably someone's who bred them and this is an escapee.
