Well, I seem to be an utter failure with buttons. I KNOW that I have one male/female pair, housed together. The other pair, I'm unsure of genders. They're officially 9 weeks old today, and I have yet to have anybody crowing, no eggs, no mating, nothing. After the disaster with the baby buttons, I was disheartened, but, now, at 9 weeks, still no breeding from my buttons, and out of the 10 eggs in the incubator, ONE is developing. One other egg had a blood spot. I wouldn't feel so bad if mine would start laying, because shipping must be very hard on the tiny eggs, but, my birds aren't doing anything. I don't even have any hopes for the chicken eggs that I put in tonight, and the button eggs from ebay and bantam EE's that are coming Monday, I feel like I shouldn't even bother putting them into the incubator.
