My mom came home from the feedstore on monday asking me if i wanted button quail for christmas. Of course! she told me there were two pairs, "grey" and "brown", and she liked the grey ones better, and gave me cash to go buy them. So I just brought them home! (We are sort of skipping christmas here, so it doesn't really matter if they're early, and i wanted to get them before someone else.) I apologize for the bad quality cell phone pic, i'll get better pictures tomorrow (after i tear the house apart searching for my expensive camera that i foolishly lost!). The one in the front I'm assuming is the male, because the other one is missing a bunch of feathers. He also seems bossier than the other one. He's a bit darker than she is. I want to make sure I've got a real pair, which leads me to this question- How often do they lay eggs? The feed store has been removing their eggs daily. There was one in their cage when I bought them, and I was told they had taken two out this morning, which is like, 3 eggs in a 24 hour period, and I'm not sure I believe it, but since i don't really know how often they lay, I can't be sure. It just makes me worry that I've got two girls if they're laying that much. i think the female is a silver pearl, and the male is silver blue face? Hopefully someone can confirm once I get real pics up..
