    So, I ordered half a dozen button quail eggs. I know literally nothing about button quail! I used to have a pair, but my male(Elijah) Died while my female(Grace) was sitting on eggs. something got in the cage and killed grace smashing the eggs.We now have a better cage and want to give it another go. How much water should you put in?(I do not have a humidity measure so will need direct measurements) How long do they take to hatch and what temp ?And any advice on raising the chicks. I have an auto turn so don't need to worry about turning them. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
