    Does any one know if i could use the ware hutch from tsc for buttons not the chick n hutch one but the other i know its got inch by inch for side wire and half inch by inch floor wire i will be putting hay or pine straw for the little quails feet. Dishes for food and water and a nest or two, some branches, and a littel house, but would that work for 3-4 pr of buttons?

    Buttons are very small, about 2 oz. and can slip through 1"x1" wire.

    X2, Yes they are really tiny so you'll have to reduce the size of the side wire you were planning to avoid escapes.[​IMG]
