    I wanted to start a thread about button quail hatching and raising their own chicks. I would be interested in trying. Maybe somebody can relate, give some tips, advice.

    Button quail can brood and raise their young. Like any bird, some will make better mothers than others. The fathers get involved usually as well which is fun to watch. In some situations, the male needs to be removed, or the young need to be removed when hatched.
