Short and sweet, I collected a few quail from the "chukar challenge" specifically to make the pups first intro to birds super low threat. It only took a moment, and we had lots of wagging tails and as far as four week old puppies go, their "undivided attention". All in all they are all doing great, all had interest with signs of being timid. Here are a few images that turned out okay - enjoy!
