Extras for quails

Hi,
I’m raising about 10 quails hens as for pets not mainly for their eggs or meat. So I’m wondering if someone can give me a list of what extras could be for their coop, feed and anything you can come up with. Many thanks.

For now I have a 10X10X7 coop, some nesting boxes, shelter, feeder and waterer in it.

For their feed, I do turkey starter (30%), mealworms, oyster shells, greens.

Hi Johnny, what do you mean by "extras"?

Hey Mike, I meant what else could I add or adjust to make my quails live better and more comfortably.

Gotcha, thanks!  I don't have quail so I'm not sure what goodies they'd like.  Hopefully now the people that do have quail can chime in more easily.
 
I brought this back from the farm where they grow the tiny ads:
