Well, the summer has passed by, and I have neglected this blog the whole while. We are still here, working with the garden and animals, but the fire repair has taken up most of our time and attention. While we were busy, the quail grew up! They live outdoors in a tractor made for them by Mr. UrbanSuburban. If we keep a few quail in the pen, several others can wander about outside. They prefer to be together at all times, and especially at night. As evening approaches, the birds in the pen call the adventurers back home.

The quail are growing but they are still quite little. Now they have wing feathers and sweet tiny voices. They are so very very nervous. They are nervous of any sound, any movement, any adjustment of their light. They are terrified of all water and food changes. I expect that they will feel nervous about training with our dog.
