    My button questions are as follows-
    - Can button quail hatch coturnix quail? Like placed eggs in their nests.
    - If in a 28 C 24/7 heated room will they hatch their own chicks?
    -How many should I get? I have to get rite of some Coturnix but will be getting buttons. I would like to have a go at them raising there own young. 1 male to X females etc..
    My coturnix quails are
    -Anybody used homemade incubators?
    -I have heard a sponge in water controls humidity in a homemade incubator is this reliable?
    -I have one with a dislocated hip, what do I do?
    - How long does it take new quail to settle and lay eggs? It has been two weeks without an egg.
    -Is it better to get oyster grit at 2.50 New Zealand dollars a Kilogram or three oyster grit large mats ar 5 New Zealand dollars.
    -Grass mowings okay for their cages?

    If more info is needed I can provide it.
    Thank you so much!


    THE COTURNIX all seem to be boys but look colour wise to be girls. I am so confused on sexing I have read like ten sexing things but they all seem to 'crow'
