What climate for Buttonquail?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I have buttons in an unheated building and I live in Denmark. This winter has been relatively mild, but I'd estimate they've been exposed to -10 degrees Celsius several times and they seem to be doing just fine, though it would of course be easier to keep them if their water didn't freeze and they'd probably appreciate higher temps as well. I won't say this would work everywhere, Scandinavian buttons might have been bred tougher than buttons in other places. But I have 10 buttons in that building and haven't lost any or seen signs of disease.
