    Hi all,
    I am new to buttons and have recently hatched 3 cute little buttons (4 weeks old now). 2 are silvers and one is a white. My question is, if I breed the two silvers is that going to cause trouble? Or silver to white? I know some color varieties in other birds I raise you shouldn't cross because its fatal so I wondered about buttons? Thanks in advance for any info.

    As far as I know, the only fatal mutation in button quail is the Golden Pearl. Silver to silver shouldn't cause trouble.
