    Hi there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    GrandmaBird is the Button Quail expert in the quail section. You can pm her with questions if you need to. But you might bed them in wood shavings, add some fake foliage and other hidy places to help keep them secure. Are they male and female? Buttons are kept in pairs, male to female. They are such a cute quail to own. You might head over to the quail section of the forums to chat with other Button owners...
