    Hi ,
    I've never had Button Quail before so this little guy is my first! And I'm in love already!
    I've looked at tons of posts on colors, but they haven't sunk in yet. lol.. Probably wont until I've had them all. [​IMG]

    So,
    Can I get some help with this little guy for starters.
    I would guess Cinnamon, but not sure.

    The first picture is at about 3 days old and the second picture is a week old, taken today.
    Sorry the first one is so large, I tried to resize it in Photobucket, but it's giving me trouble.
    Thanks,

    Hi Shelly,
    Thank you for your help. [​IMG]
    It's exciting to see the colors starting to come through!
    I'm going to try and get this little guy another of it's own kind this week.
    At the moment it's in with Jumbo Brown's and they all get along great, but the size difference concerns me.
    I tried keeping this little guy in his own box, but he jumped out twice to be with the others. lol.
