Subject: My Quail Robert

I tried to post this earlier, but it didn't show up on the board, so I'll try again. Also, my original post was "Lone Quail" but I see another post with the same Subject, so changed the Message Subject to avoid confustion. Last fall I bought a pair of Zebra finches. The breeder "threw in" a lonely button quail. They said he'd do fine with the finches. Well, they pick on him, so I separated them. Now he is by himself. I get him out every night for a spell. He's never really tamed down, but does sit on my lap sometimes for a brief time (on the floor of course). He has a bad eye (probably hatched that way, and
I'm guessing that's why they gave him to me....no one else wanted him). I named him Robert (after the story....That Quail Robert...who incidentally turned out to be Roberta). He's a wacky little bird, but sure is fun. Just wondering what your thoughts are on keeping a single bird, and how big should his area be if there is only one. Any suggestions to make his little life happy would be appreciated.
Thanks for the input!
