    not really. They make a call that is loud but no where near a rooster
    crow. I had quail living in my living room. I'd hear them start at 5am.
    It was cool.

    My quail are Coturnix. I'm told buttons sound different.

    I agree-they are much quieter than most caged birds.

    Mine can be very loud when they want to be like at 3 am when you want to sleep. Normally though they don't bother me too much just on those rare days the males decide to communicate at 3am.
