    Until you get a definitive answer, I would keep them separated. I believe I have read that they will kill each other.

    Sorry, I don't know anything about quail. People at Mountain Peep's link should be able to help though!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    No you should never keep two male quail together. Quail are very territorial and one of them is going to get hurt.

    Definitely stop by our quail section for more help with your Buttons. If you need more help and can't find any answers, GrandmaBird is the Button expert in the quail section. Send her a PM. She really knows her Button Quail...https://www.backyardchickens.com/u/146034/grandmabird
