Bedding quails


Quails belong to the chicken family and were originally native to Europe, Africa and Asia.
They are the smallest of their kind - "mini chickens", so to speak!
These sociable birds need to be kept with other quails, and feel comfortable in groups.
As ground dwellers, they prefer to stay on the ground, but can fly very well; if danger threatens, they use their flying ability and simply take off.
