    We got plenty of space and breeding cages,I think you got 100 eggs from me at my Ebay Auction??? MsCarrie27 user ID.
    I didnt want to get this amount,but its like a birds you dont have this color and you got to get few of these ,few of those and number goes up.Someone ordered 200 Button quails and by the time they got ready they change their mind.
    They are small,but very cute,each of them is diferent.One of the males got attacked as gouvenile and I think he lost the eys.He comes every morning to the front of the cage and eats out of my hand.Their poop does smell,so right now I am working on designing new breeding pens for trios.On the bottom I dont want to put a poop catch pen,got new idea .I want to put roll of the paper,so when is dirty roll down some and throw old one in trash.I hope it will work.
