six week old coturnix quail.

The coturnix babies all grown up at six weeks old :)

These babies are now almost adults and have been split out into groups of 3 females and one male. The extra boys went to another home where they wouldn’t be dinner. Yes, my birds are pets and if I can help it, they don’t end up on the menu 🙂 These plastic tubs work well for reasonably roomy housing, even for the big coturnix quail. The are about $15 at Target and are 18 and 3/4″ wide and 34″ long. They also work wonderfully well as grow out cages for button quail.
