Hi, just wondering if i could put my button quail with my linnie, i just got my linnie hes 8 weeks old, im just concerned if i did this that the linnie would take on the behaviour of the button quail and then i wont be able to hand tam the linnie
Hmm, it could go either way. Linnies do spend more time on the ground than other species, and having a ground-dwelling friend is likely to encourage that. However, they are different enough that it might not be a problem. Have you posted on the linnie forum? You could ask there as well, perhaps someone there may know!
Chris try spending some time singing, whistling or just talking quietly to the linnie. I bet in no time he will come out to see what's going on. They can be very shy and it only takes time and patience to win them over. Well worth it for sure. :biggrin5:
