i loved this book. before i went out and bought my pet quail i read this book and so much in this book is true. i have had so much companionship from my quail (his name is donkey quail or mr. dq for short) just as anyone could from a dog or a cat. he sits by my side at night time. sometimes even on my shoulder. he likes to be pet and he even knows his name. i think everyone who reads this book will enjoy it and will probably want to go out and get a quail.
