    I have 12 buttons now and they are living in a plastic tote inside the house ( one of those large clear ones )

    I would like to be able to move them outside where they ( and me ) can have fresh air - I would also like them to be able to access to dirt, bugs,and greens

    I dont have to worry about predators we live in an area where the biggest threat is a cat LOL we have no racoons or hawks or weasles or anything like that
    I would like to be able to build them a hoop coop like what I use for my younger chicks as an outside brooder

    it does not have to be as big as this one LOL I want to be able to plant flowers to grow over the whole hoop part to provide shade and give them a sense of saftey I can run a light out to it for winter to keep them warm no problems there.

    also I was told that buttons will not live in a family group that I needed to seperate them into smaller groups with only male per 2-3 females

    any help - would be great

    thanks
