    The birds shown are the birds listed in this auction. I'm moving and won't have space to keep 50+ button quail. Most have been re-homed but I still have a few pair who need to be placed.

    You can view 'good' pictures (My pictures all stink!) on quailladyoffortmyers's website at http://www.stellar-gamebirds.com/Button-Quail-Colors.html Just do a search on the page for "blue breasted". This will show you a picture of the hen. Quaillady does NOT have a picture of a Blue Breasted Cinnamon on her site, though they are similar to the Red Breasted Cinnamons, only with Blue breasts [​IMG]

    This is a bonded pair, they have been together since the day they hatched. They are a little over 1 year old (several of my birds are from the same hatch [​IMG]), and hatched approx. 10-10-10. Generally, the little hen lays 5-6 eggs weekly and HAS gone broody (though she didn't hatch any).

    Shipping is based on your zip code plus box fee. I don't have any chick boxes but have several of the horizon single NEST boxes. These boxes are $10 each, chick boxes are generally $3-$5. However, shipping (to me) on 1 chick box makes them about $10, sometimes more. So box fee is $10 unless you have an old chick shipping box laying around that you can send to me [​IMG]

    I can combine shipping on the buttons. A 50-ct chick box can be used for 2 pair, or a 100-ct box for 3-4 pair. I might be able to divide a single NEST box to ship 2 pair if needed.
