    My Button Quail hens are laying out of control!! I have hatched, and am hatching, all that I want for a while. I don't want to sell the excess on Ebay, so I thought I might see if anyone wants to trade some chicken eggs for a batch of 40 or so Buttons.

    I'm a certified "hatchaholic", so I'll trade for just about anything. I'd prefer purebred though, and it can be just a few or whatever kinda equals out the value of 40 Button eggs. I would prefer Silkie, Cochin (Standard & Bantam) or Welsummer, but anything else would be cool too.

    I have most of my Buttons in a colony setup, so they can be any of these colors, Blue/Red Breasted Normals, Darth Vader, Silver, White, Pied, Cinnamon, etc. My hatch rates here are incredible, and my eggs are fresh (2 or 3 Days tops)

    If you want to trade something, let me know via PM, and we'll work out the details.

    I have coturnix, if you want other types of quail.. though I'd also be willing to trade either coturnix or buttons for banties right now. Empty bator.. eek. I'm looking for other bloodlines to start colour breeding the buttons in pairs.

    I have RIR/EE eggs and in a couple weeks I'll have Frizzle (Cochin) and Silkie eggs. I just seperated my pens, so I want to make sure they have time to get rid of the impurities.
