    I am so jealous of you!!! I have been looking for at least a month for button quail and the closest I have found them is a 1 1/2 hour drive! Even those are the regular wild color so i'm looking for a second pair of a pretty color (the closest ones i've found are 2 1/2 hours away!) [​IMG]

    Anyway have fun with them! They are so adorable!

    poultryqueen if you have an incubator why not buy some hatching eggs from quiallady or shelleydove?
    i got my first eggs from quaillady these chicks are 3rd generation from those birds not including these babies here ive got 7 pairs and 2 bacholor males.
    also i know quail lady sells colored pairs white pairs,cinnamon pairs,splashed pairs maybe order some from her?

    also ive set another batch of eggs the day the last chick hatchd from this batch 8 more eggs from my
    white male/red breasted female
    white male/pied female
    and tuxedo male/red breasted female

    so hopefully get somemore colorful babies!

    I do have an incubator but i'm gone all day so keeping chicks would be tough and I can only keep 2 pairs at a time so I dont know what I would do with the extras!
