Hi Rob,

Congrats on your chicks! I hope they're doing well!

I hate to say, but if you have more than one chick, they're rather difficult to raise as tame. This has been my experience anyway. A single chick will imprint on you very easily, but with more than one, they seem to ultimately gravitate towards one another, rather than us, as they mature.

I'm sure you'll enjoy them just the same, and don't hesitate to keep trying to win their tameness by hand-feeding them treats - even a relatively "wild" button will still eat from your hand where mealworms and the like are concerned.

Good luck and Happy Quails!

Michele
