I was wanting to keep a few Japanese quail in rabbit cages indoors, but now I'm wondering if I should have button quail instead as these seem to be less messier. The only problem is, I would like to have eggs as well and button quail eggs are soooo small I guess I'll have to decide what I really want. But can anyone tell me about button quail? Any information would be great e.g. How long is their incubation period, how long till they start laying eggs, what is their expected lifespan etc. I also want to know which would be easier to keep. From what I've heard, button quail tend to be more flightier than the Japanese, but some people have quite tame buttons...Would they have to be kept in a glass tank due to their size? How much smaller than Japs are they? And how much smaller are their eggs? Any information on their upkeep would be helpful as well.
