    Sorry I don't know anything about quail but, if you go to the "Other backyard poultry," forum above you will find threads for quail and can post your questions there. Someone may be along in awhile that has experience with quail. Welcome to BYC

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Buttons can stay wild and skittish much of their lives. They are not quail that you handle and snuggle with. Coturnix quail are a bit more snuggly, however most quail refer not to be touched at all. Be very careful when handling them as they can injure themselves trying to get away from you.

    I'm not raising quail, so I cannot answer your question. But welcome to BYC and to the forum.
