    I just took my two coturnix quail and put them in the outdoor aviary. The two button quail are crying so loud now - they miss their bigger friends! Can they go outside too? They are all a week old, and temps outside are about 70, and all are doing fine in that temperature.

    A week old is a bit young to put baby buttons in an aviary. I would wait till 3 weeks atleast [​IMG]

    Awww!

    Yeah, it was too early - I did not see these thread responses until today. A ferocious budgie took an interest in the buttons and they are no more. [​IMG]
