    I just got a pair of buttons and really want to hatch some eggs but I can't keep the chicks for long after I hatch them. I'm looking for someone who would take them for free and give them a good home. I have one pair so I only get about 6 eggs a week but I can hatch 2 batches of eggs if you want more chicks. Please PM me if you are interested!

    I think 6 would be plenty for me. How do you house yours? I have raised bobwhites before but am new to these.

    So 3 pairs or 2 trios? Every cage should have solid flooring, fake plants, and maybe a little hut (cardboard box with opening). Also, you should only have one pair or trio to a cage unless the cage is huge because they will fight violently. They do best in pairs but trios work. Are you housing them inside or outside?
