Update on Little Diddums
I thought I'd give everyone a quick update on Little Diddums. The first pic here is the little guy not long after Mr.P rescued him from the aviary. We have 5 other quails and for some reason they just didn't want this little guy around. He wasn't very alert, don't think he was more than a day old when we found him.
He couldn't get enough of our hands though, he loves to burrow into them and be held, mostly for the warmth I think. Thanks to a tip from Bill, I mixed some honey with water and finally managed to get him to drink some. After that I tried to put him to bed.
Everytime I tried to pop him back in the box he would start crying, the saddest little sound you ever did hear! I had to ignore his cries in the end so I could go to bed. It was 2am.
