    Im really interested in hatching buttons for my birthday. I want a small number so I was thinking a trio. I read you should only get in pairs....How come? are male buttons like roosters and attack eachother? can I keep two males together with 2 hens?

    I know a bit about them through research ive done, but I couldn't find the height of a pen to keep them in. what would you recommend for the amount of space for one bird so I know how big to make the pen? I want it for in my room so it has to be somewhat small, not the size of a huge chicken coop. haha

    any other information you think would be helpful for me to know as well? pros or cons? anything will be great :)
