the king quail, also known as the buttonquail, is an asian quail species commonly kept in aviculture. in captivity, they are often a part of mixed aviaries, as they are happy to stay solely on the ground floor and clean up dropped food. they feed on seeds, insects, and fruits. they are primarily found in blue and brown colorations in the wild, but have many developed color mutations in captivity. they are highly social birds that are happiest when living in groups.

my moominsona would be a quail with a flower/plant for its head plume, and maybe a fancy little collar :) fun to think about

There's naturally some variation in egg coloration, and that blue egg is an actual genetic mutation called celadon. That little egg on the left, however, is seriously tempting me to add a load to my incubator to see if I can get a new egg color... I have someone that would take a bunch of chicks if I hatched them, I could keep just a couple. Maybe I'll wait a couple days and see if there are more of the same or if it was a one off.

the quail-plover is a small member of the buttonquail family found in dry regions of africa. the ‘plover’ portion of their name originates not from any close relation, but from the plover-like barred marking visible on the wing in flight. these birds are often found as individuals or in pairs, and primarily live in scrubland habitats.
