Pet art - Quail!

21 Jul 2019, 8:00 am
Item Order: Pet Art (set of 4)
Item Description: I'd really like a series of quail. I love all quail, so in the interest of having the different rarities look different enough, here are the four species of quail that I'd like to use: Scaled Quail, California Quail, King Quail (extra small!) and the Harlequin Quail (AKA Montezuma Quail). An image search or wikipedia in any of those names will yield lots of reference photos, far more than I could post here, but let me know if you want something specific.
Item Name: Scaled Quail, California Quail, King Quail and Harlequin Quail.
Item Text:
Scaled Quail: You can tell by the head floof why it's also called a cottentop.
California Quail: Despite their habitat, does not know how to surf.
King Quail: Their chicks are the size of fluffy bumblebees. Lethal levels of cute, keep at your own risk.
Harlequin Quail: Looks ready for a masquerade ball!

Price: $65

The default of having them available from the Recycler is fine by me. :)

Other stuff: I'd like to offer a $15 tip Shroomy because their stuff is great. :) Also if anyone has better ideas for item text, please, feel free to suggest things! I'm having a bit of writer's block.

So there's a little story behind my quail obsession - this part isn't actually relevant to the item order but might be amusing: My mom had an aviary for awhile that included a pair of King Quail (nicknamed button quail for their tiny size, although a buttonquail is a totally different bird). They surprised everyone by hatching a clutch of eggs. The babies are about the size of bumblebees, and are a precocious species (that means they're fluffy like chicken chicks and can walk and peck for themselves as soon as they are dry). And you can hold an entire clutch in your two hands and it's so darn cute I could die. ::D Well, the smallest baby actually fell out between the bars repeatedly, and when my dad found her outside for the third time, shivering because she couldn't get back to her siblings, he brought her inside and I hand-raised her. Her name was Peep and she had enormous personality. Their lifespan is only about three years and it about broke me when I lost her (thankfully at a very elderly age for her kind). She had no fear, no idea what a predator was... she'd follow you down the hall, sample my mom's hot cereal (all grain so perfectly healthy for a quail). I had a reptile "warm rock" in her enclosure, because the King Quail is native to a very warm climate. She would sleep on it. Once I freaked out thinking something was wrong with her because I found her lying on her back on it - but she was just suuuuper relaxed and confused that I interrupted her nap. XD
tl;dr - my quail was my baby and now I'm semi-obsessed with quail. They are the best.

We raised quail chicks in my second grade classroom so seven year old me is bouncing up and down. Even now I absolutely love them, and it’s great to see them around!

There used to be a bunch of quail by my house but sadly, the dogs chased them away.

Heheh I am proud to be the bringer of quail to Furvilla. XD

Just for fun, I'll link a picture of Peep, my pet "button" quail (they call them that in the stores because they are smol but technically they are properly called King Quail or Chinese Painted Quail).

Peep in my hand!
