    Removed males. Left other female. She seems to be sharing the care of the chicks and nest. This is my first clutch. Will this be ok to leave the 2 girls together with the babies.

    Well mum isn't sitting any more. So it looks like I have 5 hatched out of 11 eggs. All different colors. 1Yellow, 1dark on top&yellow under neath, 1grayish, 1yellow and brownish striped, 1dark brown. So cute. Mum has led them to food and water. Other female will mother any chick that comes by. So far so good.:)

    Aw too cute! I am hoping my buttons breed at all, but it would be beyond awesome if she brooded them herself!
